1942! This is an original vintage Royal Crown Cola (RC Cola) "Take Home A Cola" metal store display rack stand. The rack is stamped "Southern Spring Bed Co. 3/17/1942, PAT. #2276795" and measures 39" high by 19" wide by 18" deep. These yellow and white painted racks were used in stores throughout the U.S. to hold RC Cola soda cartons. It has some issues but some can be corrected. It has had some white paint touch-up done a long time ago. It has four advertising bar logos across; the two reading "Best Home Buy" (one is very good and one is bent on the left side), the middle reading "Best By Taste-Test Royal Crown Cola" (had been painted at one time but all the lettering shows through and paint can possibly be removed) and top rack reads "Take Home A Carton" (in very good condition). There is one bent spoke on the second rack and one spoke that has a small end broken off. One end is sagging slightly on the bottom rack, possibly by too much weight placed on it at one time and the sign plate on one end is bent and can be straightened. There is some rust here and there and some of the paint has worn off but the rack stands up steady on its own and can be used once again. It was lightly cleaned up with soap and water.
