Spiffy Cola is now one of the many soft drinks relegated to the "Land of Lost Flavors." But for at least a couple of years it was a going concern with a pretty wide distribution network. It would appear that Spiffy, like a number of their competitors, was put out of business by war-time shortages of sugar and flavorings for their product and probably glass and paint for their containers, as well. This 32-3/8" x 11-5/8" sign, features a big, full-figure representation of the odd little lip-licking company mascot, and it also presents a perfect representation of the largely forgotten company's product bottle. Light surface wear and a diminished level of gloss are the sign's most notable condition issues.
Estimated Value: $600 - $800.
