Of course it would have been great if it was in good shape, but what a cool story. I would never sell it, because it's not about the money; you have a cool story and the sign that goes with it. Like you said, hang it up and be proud of it for what it is, and the cool story.

Having only been in the hobby for 5 years, one of the strangest and surprising aspect of the hobby for me has been buried signs and the stories people tell. I just never thought that this is one way/place people would find things. If the signs could only talk.
And here this story is one of the best ever. Again, if that sign could only talk. How in the world did it end up there? Crazy to me!
Congrats on a crazy find!!

This is a great story! I found one buried in a guy's yard one time. I think it may have been a bike ramp somebody forgot lol! That would absolutely go on my wall. If nothing else, somebody, some day, is going to ask "where in the heck did that come from?"

Hang it on the wall and tell anyone who asks that story. Thats the real gem.
The sign is a diamond in the rough.

The problem with rivers in NY is they freeze almost solid & the ice destroys whatever gets in the way. Might get lucky with a detector depending on how deep things are. I have an extra machine I'd let you use. Give me a shout Tom. I'll help you find whatever's there...if anything

Very neat find, even in its condition.
Some of the older gentleman around here that used to work for the local oil companies have told me about a "pump dump" in the woods about 30 min from my house where they disposed of old pumps.
