Paul,

I liked the first one looked better even if the masses deemed it over oxidized. The new one may be redder and aged but the decal appears to have slipped, folded over or tore? These were I believe tin stamped so the fragments of logo wouldn't look as such.

Philip:

Thanks for the input. One of the good things about this forum is that there are always differing viewpoints. Actually, the cooler that I based this one on had a raised embossed logo, painted white, so it seemed perfectly plausible to me that the white paint of the logo could be worn away in places due to repeated rubbing and mistreatment. Luckily when applying the decal, it didn't fold or tear on me in spite of it being extremely delicate after all the decal film had been blasted away with the soda blaster. It's the kind of operation where you want to be sure you have another decal on hand in the event the blasted one just falls to bits. As it happens, this was my last coke logo decal, so I breathed a hearty sigh of relief once it was in its final position.
