How does a 12 inch sign with a 2 inch chip rate a 9?

Re: "How does a 12 inch sign with a 2 inch chip rate a 9?"

Probably because it was a only thin chip just along the edge. Nice sign, check it out...




My question is how can a creased, twisted and otherwise severely damaged sign be "worth" $2,000?? More power to him if he gets it!!

This category is for "For Sale or Trade" Not "What you think is wrong with my stuff" If MM wants $2K, he can ask that, if you think its too much, don't buy it! You wonder why we have almost 7000 members and only a handfull post..........

No, I don't "wonder" anything. And all the commentary has been between subsequent posters, NOT the seller. So, what's the problem??

The problem is knocking what is being offered for sale is bad for business, and not what this category was intended for.

I would think some of the rust staining on this sigh might clean off. Like MM said, not perfect but not 12G'a also. The one I saw sell at Iowa Gas this year was nicer but it went for a lot more money than the asking price on this one.

Looks ike a sign with 80 % porcelain on it.. now if it was 20% then it would be a different story..
