This sign was found in a dumpster

And the other side had bondo all over it. I think they were using it for a bondo palit

Good post,this one should be fun to watch particularly if someone posts a display layout where ALL the signs are distressed.It kind of goes along with my theory that there is a place for every sign in the hobby.

I've got a couple of guys that come around specifically asking for signs that are "distressed","have character" or "patina".I guess they are laying out their whole displays with such signs.

There is another guy whose whole place is more or less done up in such signs.Actually,it's kind of fun to look at because it is something you just don't see every day.In the right setting with the right guy the display works IMO.

I think the Shell flange wins.

This is my worst 'nice' sign. There may be others that aren't so nice but I am not fessing up to owning any. The left one is the rarer right facing two foot single-sided porcelain Red Indian image. I haven't got around to having it restored, yet. Cheers, Don.
