As the title describes, I took down all the coke stuff that was on a bookshelf, barely visible behind some pictures, with dust so thick, could probably plant pumpkin seeds right off the tops, if you gave em some water and sun! A few days ago I posted a blurry picture of a soviet union coke bottle, so snapped some better shots of it along with a few other cans/bottles with foreign text! I'm really just trying to figure out if any hold a meaningful value, but also if there's an active market for these type coke products!?!? Any advice would be greatly appreciated

My girlfriend collects all things Coca Cola and has most of what you have. No real big value items there but still fun to collect.

I've been trying to figure out why he kept 2 of those cans, they do say "Real Coke" and have a lil yellow stripe in logo?? Maybe that was the 1st cans afterthe new coke debacle??

Those definitely postdate New Coke by quite a long time. New Coke was back in the 80s, the "Make it real" slogan debuted in 2005 https://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/coke-classic-spots-make-it-real-77195/ Doesn't seem to have lasted very long, but I don't think it's why he kept the cans. I think I see some German writing on them, so maybe they were kept as souvenirs of a trip to Germany?

The one can had what looked like Arabic or something with the old style pull tops, then the 2 I'm talking about had no foreign text on the cans, but there was a third can that hhad a few different languages all saying something, but that text was green

The latter was almost identical to the two I'm talking about, aside from the green foreign text

I'll hafta go by and take another look, I asked dad about it and while dementia has been taking its toll, he still remembers older things and he said it was a national brand put out by coca cola?? I thought it was related to the closest city from my hometown, Alexandria, but he said no, that coke put it out everywhere??
