The maker of the Beacon reproduction signs is Jerry Van Dyke out of Northern California. He does amazing work but does not try to put them out as the real thing.
Jerry does not do mass production, only one of a kind and one off signs unless he's changed is ways. Many of the signs in Ron's pictures are not reproduction, some are real. It's not hard to tell a repro sign from the real thing if you have some basic knowledge. Just always know, if the price is too low in a retail situation...beware. The only place you are going to find a rare piece at a cheap price is in someone who is selling from that "old barn that you find in the woods" and we know that dosen't happen often unless your name is Ron Bettin.
Ron has fantastic luck sometimes but that's because he has a good reputation and is actually a nice guy.
