I have the opportunity to buy this sign and to me, it appears real. The seller says that the sign hanger is original too.

I would love to hear what the experts think about it. The seller wants 300 bucks but I am unsure if this is a good deal.

I appreciate any input you may have.

The hanger and the sign are both originals. However, they don't go together. The sign is an oil can rack sign. It wasn't originally on that hanger.The sign has been trimmed along one side that is why the hanging holes are not centered. You will note that the thin white border is missing along the trimmed edge.

I would spend my $300.00 on something nicer.

In an unsuspected turn of events, the seller contacted me back out of the blue. He told me that I can have the sign and the hanger for $125.

I know from the posts above that the sign has been trimmed and that the hanger does not go to it.

I'm unsure if it's worth it so I'm asking for your help one more time on this.

Thanks!

The hanger is probably worth $50.00-$75.00 and the sign is probably worth the same.

If, it is something that you can put up on the wall and enjoy...well then, that is priceless!
