Can anyone shed light on this Northland sign on ebay? The auction ended and I passed bidding on it thinking that it may not be an original vintage sign. The seller had a starting bid of $199. I collect Northland but just not sure about this sign so I passed on it. It's a 16" button domed style sign.
What do you guys think did I miss a good sign for $200?

I just noticed that the sign was relisted immediately at auction end with a starting bid this time of $255.

Thanks for the quick response. The sign looked older but something about it just didn't sit right so I didn't bid and the seller wouldn't say if it was original, just that it came out of an antique shop with some other signs.
Did Northland not make 16" round pump signs and are all these 16" round dome style signs you see out there repro's? Just trying to make some sense of these style signs and determine what's original vintage and what's fake.
Thanks for your help.

I know nothing about Northland,I based it on the fact that all sellers signs are described the same way and they are not real. When you not sure take the time to look at the over all picture seller has 100 percent happy customers but all the sales are patches and keychains, all recently produced.
