Hi everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I have been doing a bit of research on this sign but I have not come up with much in the way of values. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! smile Thank you.

Welcome. I guess that by milkglass you are referring to the neon tubes? Otherwise, your sign appears to be porcelain on a mounting can, which holds the transformer? If I am missing something, please let me know? Paul www.severngaspumps.com

letters are milkglass

rare sign, quite desirable. they did repop these signs and did a darn good job on them... so, IMO, that has hurt them a little bit.

as long as its 100% legit, its a high dollar sign... I couldnt tell you exactly, but its a good one

Place it on ebay with a high reserve. It won't cost you anything. You just might want to sell it if it gets crazy. Ralph White would be a good source for value or consign to Mecum in Kansas City.

Nice sign, the milk glass letters make it very desirable and rare. In my opinion, repops never hurt the value of good original stuff that you can easily verify as original. The guy buying this won't be influenced by that. The person buying this would be an established and experienced collector.
Too bad it wasn't a complete sign...that would really push the money on this. You have to keep in mind that it's one half of a sign and more then likely mounted on a newer can.
If you can afford to keep it...it's the kind of sign you want to keep. It's economy and recession proof and will always be a quick sell.

...the yellow 'SUPER' & 'SERVICE' letters are flat glass, installed behind the porcelain face...

The Chevrolet should be Milk Glass also. Try Ron on here for good Chevrolet pricing of Neons.

So now it seems the question should be asked, Do you own it or are you looking to buy it from someone else and then trying to sell it ?

Well, he's sure not a collector, or he would never have asked that question!

I think a post like this should have been the first one after his initial question.
