Coca-Cola was first served in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia. John Pemberton, an Atlanta pharmacist, invented Coca-Cola when he combined a mysterious, dark liquid with carbonated water. It was advertised through signs, newspaper ads, coupons, bottles, trays, calendars, and even lamps and clocks. Collectors want anything with the word Coca-Cola, including a few rare products, like gum wrappers and cigar bands. The famous trademark was patented in 1893, the Coke mark in 1945. Many modern fantasy items and reproductions have been made.
