A Time Remembered

Circa: 1970
Condition: New
Manufacturer: AMG Corp./Madison, New Jersey
This collectible puzzle in a tin was made by AMG Corp. of Madison New Jersey, under the authority of the Coca Cola Company, owner of the trademark Coca Cola. It has the Official Coca Cola Liscensed Stamp on the can with the name on a label: Coke Nostalgia / 700 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle / 12 by 34.
The product that has given the world its best-known taste was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca-Cola, and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was sampled, pronounced excellent and placed on sale for five cents a glass as a soda fountain drink. Carbonated water was teamed with the new syrup to produce a drink that was at once Delicious and Refreshing, a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca-Cola is enjoyed.
Thinking that the two Cs would look well in advertising, Dr. Pemberton's partner and bookkeeper, Frank M. Robinson, suggested the name and penned the now famous trademark Coca-Cola in his unique script. The first newspaper ad for Coca-Cola soon appeared in The Atlanta Journal, inviting thirsty citizens to try the new and popular soda fountain drink.
Dr. Pemberton never realized the potential of the beverage he created. He gradually sold portions of his business to various partners and, just prior to his death in 1888, sold his remaining interest in Coca-Cola to Asa G. Candler. An Atlantan with great business acumen, Mr. Candler proceeded to buy additional rights and acquire complete control. With Asa Candler, now at the helm, the Coca Cola Company increased syrup sales by over 4000% between 1890 and 1900.
Still in it's original un-opened packaging, the can does have signs of rusting on the bottom from laying, which I have shown in my pictures and it measures 6 1/2 inches tall and 5 inches wide.
An addition to any Coca Cola Collection.
