Absolutely authentic! Matches my known original perfectly!

On such a stunning example of this sign, I would expect the value to be somewhat higher when placed in a large nationally advertised auction, but those are always guessing games. The value given by the other members is a more realistic and fair value when contemplating the private sale of such a sign.

A nice sign like this; sells itself. In my opinion, no need to give away money to an auction house.

In Canada, most auction houses charge a 20% sellers premium. If at auction this sign sold for $10,000.00 it would still net the seller $8,000.00 after sellers premium is deducted. Only the Auction house is profiting...no net profit to the seller.
