The high bidder on this is going to be disappointed when they discover it's not porcelain.

Oh yeah this will be an interesting package to receive for the buyer... Sad thing is they probably don't know the difference.

All you have to do is click on "Click to View Image Album" link below the photo's in his auction and you can clearly see the sign is dated 1974.

I would say the person listing the sign is mistaken in calling the sign porcelain. Did any of you write to him and try to explain to him the sign was not really porcelain? Depending on the tone of the message, the person listing may have been willing to listen and change the listing

Maybe the buyer wont know the difference......seems to me that about 25% of people buying and selling signs cant tell the difference.


see me at Mason Dixon Gas, Spring Carlisle M114-115, and Hershey C4E-35.
