Colonial Melon tester RC and Moon Pie

Postby Beag1eGal » Tue Jul 17, 2018 12:39 am

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well.
I have a Colonial Melon Tester that is cream or yellow handle and it has "RC Cola and a Moon Pie" "Southern Hospitality " on handle.
Tang says. Stainless Colonial.
Any help with dates would be appreciated.
I am Georgia born, so I get the saying..
It says so much with so few words.
Pictures attached.

Thank you.

You may have stumped the experts on this one BeagleGal. I personally don't have a Colonial Mellon tester and am not familiar with Colonial tang stamps. Maybe someone will have an idea.

Thank you Dogleg. . I appreciate your reply. .
Maybe I have.. Hee Hee.. I am not familiar either. I have seen a ton of Colonials, but never paid that much attention.
Just being Georgia Born, it was the saying that stirred my heart.
