42inch Red Crown Double Sided - Mon Dec 11 2017 01:09 PM

Hello,
We are seeking some input on the value of our 42 inch Red Crown Gasoline sign. I have attached both front and back photos. At the bottom of the sign there is "ADV 250" and what appears to be "AD2800".
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

In that condition, I think Bryce is right on. And just an FYI, those tan spots look like paint and will come right off with paint remover.

Thank you for the information. Just curious, does anyone know what year it was made, approximately? It seems to be in very good condition, apart from the "plinking" it received over the years.

A close up of the writing at the bottom of the sign would probably answer your date question.

I included the markings at the bottom of the sign in my original post. The ADV 250 is clear, but the remaining markings are rather difficult to read. It appears to say AD2800, but I'm uncertain.

That sign has been through multiple rounds of eBay with no takers at that price.
