I was given this Johnson sign, and I would appreciate any help in determining its value. The paint is in rough condition it had been hanging in my Grandfathers garage for years.
Thanks,
Cory

The fact that it belonged to your grandfather should make it priceless to you.

I agree to anyone else...minimal value in that condition.

Welcome to Old-Gas.... Agreed Minimal value as it is.

But just remember a restored porcelain sign is done with filler and automotive paint and not restored in Porcelain.


Thanks

Your sign is on the verge of being undisplayable.


see me at Mason Dixon Gas, Spring Carlisle M114-115, and Hershey C4E-35.

There should be no value on this sign as it was part of your family history, as much as it should be this is the sign my grandpa had for years !

If it was at a sale and they said make offer I might go to 40 bucks but im cheap.. and if it was your grandpa's no way I would sell it for that.. its shot but still might look cool in the right spot
