The world of soda advertising bottle and can openers is explored here with over 350 photos featuring thousands of openers --Coca-Cola, Pepsi-Cola, Nehi, Cheerwine, New-Grape, Red Rock Cola, Moxi, Hires, and Royal Crown, to name a few--along with information on American patents; opener manufacturers; soda products; opener packaging; modern, foreign, and fantasy openers; hints on grading and cleaning openers; index; and price guide. An additional catalog index of over 2,500 known soda advertising openers is organized by type. With such a wealth of information amassed into one volume, this book is destined to become the bible for soda opener collectors.
