Brought back memories of the 1985 "New Coke" experiment. 

Personally I have not had any carbonated drinks since I was a lad, back then my favourite was a cherryade or coke float made with vanilla ice cream.

Apparently, I was one of the few people who actually liked the "New Coke", Pat. I thought better than the original. Oh well, I suppose my knack of picking things that aren't that good has prevented me from getting a prestigious job in research and development. ;D

A major part of this thread was moved to fantasies, it relates to fantasy coco-cola tokens of which there are many manufactured in the early 1970s by two American men styling themselves L A Stamp. This information of course should be read in conjunction with the above genuine pieces.

Brandm24 first posted this token with remarks:

Quote
Here's an interesting Coca-Cola token given out at the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair. It's 38 mm and lead or pewter...not sure which. At that time Coke hadn't been around very long...1880's I think.

I was able to point out that this was a fantasy and provided my own image of another.



Quote
That is a fantasy as are any American fantasies tokens marked L.A. Stamp: ALL tokens marked such are modern fantasy items.

See my page Other L.A. Stamp fantasies and see also the history of L A Stamp fantasies this includes yet another fantasy Coca cola token

I then quoted "Another site that shows some of these fantasies."  this includes further Coca-Cola fantasy items among others.

IMO all fantasy tokens should be kept in the token section.

A strange mixture of Russian and English written phonetically with Cyrillic characters.

Joint Stock Company "Koka-Kola Sent Pitersberg Bottlers"

See my token above (reply 16 in this thread) for another Russian token, again with a company name in English transliterated into Cyrillic (in this case, complete with spelling error). I guess that it was in vogue in 1980s/90s Russia to sprinkle English around, but it had to be transliterated as insufficient people could read the Latin alphabet.

Токен Санкт-Петербурга, так же как и Московский жетон, были изготовлены в 2000-х годах. Петербургский жетон в применении небыл.

The St. Petersburg token, like the Moscow token, was made in the 2000s. The St. Petersburg token was not used.

Seems that the Google translation feature works fine when it comes to anglifying, russifying etc. ;) an entire page, but has its limits with single posts. I just used DeepL for the translation; thanks for the info!

Single posts are handled easily with a good translation app. As an expat working in five languages, I appreciate having the choice when the body wants to carry on and the brain wants to sleep.
