I https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F283344313179

Please see the attached referenced eBay listing and report. Seller is claiming it is from a 27 year old collection and is not sure if it is real or a reproduction. Sign is a reproduction and no more than 20 years old I believe. Currently has watchers and listed buy it now for $1400.00
The posting is very misleading and hints towards the sign being real.
I tried adding a photo but the file was to large. Can somebody please view the listing and post?

His posted photos are dark which was probably done on purpose

That was my same thought, every thing else that’s posted is nice and bright. It’s a shame when someone knows the difference between what’s real and what’s a reproduction and is listing it like they have no idea. That’s what made me post this!:(

The reproductions are getting better and over time it will be very difficult to distinguish between original and later produced. There are now "old" reproductions that collectors have had for years.
