Hello, this was my first porcelain sign which was given to me by my Grandfather. It came from a station in mid town Omaha, the owner was a friend of my Grandpa.
It was originally 2 sides in a frame, one side and the frame are gone, I believe it was mounted on a pole. It was on my Grandpa's farm for years, until I expressed an interest in it some time in the early 90s.
The sign measures 48" x 48" and it is 62" across point to point.
I am curious as to the value, I have not seen another like it. Not looking to sell, just want to let my family know what it is worth.
Thanks Greg

I have seen this in our area before. Looks good to me. I will go out on a limb and say $8-1000.

This sign is half on a double sided neon sign that hung from the stations. Pink neon went around the outside I believe.

I have a neon friend who loves doing interesting old stuff.
My wheels are turning in my head!
