Hi everyone!! New member here looking for some insight on this sign I have. I bought it 6-7 yrs ago on eBay, but cannot remember exactly what yr the seller said it was from. I’ve seen some with the date listed after the made in USA, but this does not have it. It measures 15x30. Any help or feedback would be appreciated. I can take other pictures if needed. Thanks in advance!!

Thank you. Was not expecting that, but maybe what I deserve for dipping my toes into a hobby without educating myself prior to buying. I remember there was a lot of bidder activity which made me feel good about it being original.

Dont ever go by people bidding crazy or bidding heavy on a sign. Ebay is full of heavy bidding fake signs.

Besides the bidding by well intentioned bidders, there are shill bidding teams out there as well giving the appearance of heavy interest on the item.
