This is for sale locally. I have searched the archives of oldgas and these were much cheaper and easier to find just 3 years ago. Either I cannot find one reasonably priced, or the market has changed so quickly I don't know what reasonable is anymore. Seller is at $1,000 firm on this.

What value do you all assign to this? Back side is similar to front.

I've seen ones in that condition at shows sell in the 300 400 range and venders taking better ones home unsold in the 8 to 1200 range ,really what's it worth to you is the question,if your happy ,why not be,

I'd be hard pressed to give $200.00 for that. Give it some time and a better one will show up.

I like the sign but I don't like the price. I've paid a premium for a lot of my signs recently to save myself time and travel costs, sometimes 20% above top value for a given condition, but this does feel like it's priced well over 100% above its real value. It's very closely located to me, but I wish the seller was realistic on his price. Thanks everyone.

I agree with les/done4. That is a plentiful sign, don't know why they ask so much for them. The seller has been watching too many episodes of The Pickers. Ask the seller to sell you some of what they are smoking. crazy Ed.

$1000 is for the rich-decorator displayer non-knowledgeable-collector.

Average selling price $300 or less. Sorry to the guys who ran across such signs for $10, those days are gone in most parts of the US.
