Wow, very cool find!
Worth BUNCHES!
Your inbox is probably blowing up! Don't short sell yourself by selling them before you do a bunch of research! These are in great condition and are some of the most highly desired signs in the hobby!
Are they double sided?
Tell us about the find if you feel like it.
Thanx for sharing!!

Thank you so much! I haven't received any messages as of yet. I found these while diving. They are not double sided and I've had offers from historians in my area for 1800-2000 a piece but because I can't find any actual info in regards to value I'm holding off for now

Wow....now we know what your "handle" means! That's cool you found them under water.
Certainly hold off as you are until you have more specific information on the values. I don't know the values of these items specifically, but do know that being Red Indian they are quite valuable, as mentioned.
Good job finding them and bringing them back into the world above water!

Well that settles it. I am going diving soon. While attending a recent farm auction I overheard or was told a few times that the speakers never knew these items (signs and other stuff) were worth so much. They said they just tossed it into the neighborhood slough. I imagine that's what happened here. Nice condition and the 30" size is hard to find. There are a few RI experts on here who will share their knowledge with you soon. Wait a day or two more and you'll get the info you desire.

Ball park range estimates in Canadian money as it's hard to tell the signs exact condition.....rougher 5'...$2500-$3500 Nicer 5'....$4000-$6000 30"...$7000-$10,000

I haven't received a single message so im not entirely sure what you mean. Completely new to forums. The sign is not for sale at this time, I'm looking for information regarding value before I list it. Although, 3 signs in one area....possibly a 4th 😉😉

Actually, brand new members do not have Private Messages enabled automatically when they first register. So their PM account is "full" because it hasn't been activated. Enabling PM messages on her account now, as well as new threads in the priced For Sale forums.

Thanks for the info Jim....obviously I didn't know that divergirl wasn't able to receive PM's. I thought that sure would have been a heckuva lot of people messaging on the signs!

Standing on a bucket LOL. Once Randy turned the pic its clear as day.
Auction prices are good place to start ,you have to be clear that they are not always correct . Might two bidders who just hate to lose.

"I'm looking for information regarding value before I list it."

Hi, gbdivergirl. Hopefully, you'll consider "listing" any signs you decide to sell on Old Gas.....where the helpful members provided you with the current market value information! John
