Hi everyone

I'm wondering what the value of this beat up Red Indian would be. Seller says it's been repainted at some point around the edges and touched up here and there. I know it's beat but it's also got charm. What is the full bore value of this sign do you think?

Hi. Not trying to hi-jack your thread. But, some time back some one was discussing "straightening" out signs by placing them between two sheets of plywood and slowly driving their truck onto the plywood. Maybe I dreamt that..LOL Sine Red Indian stuff is expensive, I would think there would be a buyer for that.

I would think porcelain would crack if weight was applied without some heat?

Thanks for the replies fella's

Any idea on Value at all? Obviously I won't hold you to it and it's hard to tell from just one picture but assuming the sign is real and assuming 1 picture could possibly be good enough to determine value- what ballpark price should I be offering for this sign?

Thanks a ton
