To all that have inquired--Thanks but I've already been offered that and I feel that a sign of this quality deserves a little premium. You could waste an awful lot of time and money, driving around looking for one like this and probably never find it.
If it was presented at auction for $1700, the buyers premium would bounce it up over the $2000 mark anyway. I will get $2000 for it, or it goes up on my wall after Iowa Gas. I'm offering it only because there are a few things in the auction at Iowa Gas that I would like to have, and I could use the extra cash.
Besides, given enough time, this sign will bring the $2000, no doubt in my mind. If you truly want one of this quality, don't hesitate. Thanks--KEVIN
