I have someone that wants to trade a Refiners oil sign for some car parts I have.
I didnít get a picture but the sign is one like the picture but is in better condition double sided porcelain with the iron ring still around it. Just need and estimate of a value so I can go into the trade with some information

when you Google and Ebay search something and get 'squat'....
I'd be trading stuff for it fast before they change their mind!
IMO

When my sign was posted no one would give a value for it but i think one nicer than mine would carry a grand but might be worth more hard to say

the original ring is worth anywhere from $175 to $250 if it hasnt been cut or can still be mounted. cleaner the better on the sign.


Always looking for good Pure stuff, dude...

Finally got back to do the trade,but as can be seen in the pictures it is not in the shape I originally thought. Its amazing what 20 foot and not being interested does to your memory. The one side was washed off with plain water and the other has not been touched, also the ring has been pulled off the sign at the bottom.
Dose anybody have a rough estimate as to value?

Clean both sides up as much as possible so we know her true condition. It looks dirty but it might be toasty. The sign is still hard to find and i think its a beautifull sign.
