Honesty , that is what this is all about ! You either are or you are not . It's all in the upbringing .
It is Sad .
Pretty easy to attempt to justify your own intentions but it's awful difficult to convince others that you did not mean to deceive buyers.

IMO...I think once the hammer and hydrochloric acid hit the 30" signs this was/is not going to happen. Also no picture of the back. That is a telltale indicator of misinformation in my experience (intentional or not).

I still want to know where you find these reproductions on line or in a catalog. It would be nice to see what is being produced before hitting the secondary markets (or getting hit with the hammers).

Looks like someone is just hoping for the sucker that doesn't call and bids high thinking its original.
It is a misleading description by someone that knows exactly what they are selling.

Are these your signs that are in question? This same seller I guess by the feedback got to a buyer by misrepresentation by the bad feedback he gave.

:o .............

Wonderful stuff that's why I'm here there is always someone trying to rip others and without information why would you bother.

Its gets to the point of thinking another hobby might be a better idea rather than trying to sort the real from the fake, I'll persevere but are very cautious ..........

Cheers bigears :)

How can you sell this junk and not expect to get blow back??

Can't stand the argument that cheap repros have value for collectors who "can't afford the real thing."
