Place of Origin

Maker Royal Crown Cola

Maker Details "RC". This company had problems because they labeled their drinks "draft" and cola was written in smaller letters. It was said to have looked too much like beer with "Draft" and the long, dark neck, so they were forced to make the word "cola" larger. The US arm of Royal Crown was forced to abandon the drink, but in many of RC's international markets Royal Crown Draft Cola is still sold, such as in Israel and the Philippines, who continue to carry Royal Crown's full line of products.

Summary Good

Assessor Christina

Notes At first glance, this carrier seems to be in excellent condition. However, when observign closely it looks like the carrier may have been painted of with silver paint and the handle and words look like they have been repainted as well. The handle has a slight bend in it along one side. There is a small knick of red paint on the silver which may indicate that the words were in fact painted with red and the artist slipped. It is uncertain. It also looks as if the silver paint covered up what was a rusty bottom. May need further examinnation.
