I think it looks ok. The detail in the horse is the same as mine & the colors look good. I think you would be ok on this one smile

HI OCTAIN, I THINK YOU MAY BE RIGHT! THE LETTERING LOOKS LIKE AN 8 YEAR OLD WITH A DULL SINGLE EDGE RAZOR BLADE DID THE CUTTING FOR THE SCREEN. I KNOW THE FONTS TO BE MUCH MORE UNIFORM, UNLIKE THIS...SEEMS TO BE ALL OVER THE PLACE AND NOT IN LINE. JM2C!

I looked at it again the letters do look a little odd. But usually the repos dont have the detail in the horse like the originals. I am a bit stumped on this one confused

I've asked him for a picture of the back side. I have a feeling that it's rusty. He deals in look alike antique's and has had 37 negative feedbacks in 12 months. With the other things already mentioned I think it's best to stay away.....far away !

I got a response from the seller already........"The back is black with speckles and some white and enamel over run. I'm not able to provide more photo's as I'm out of town."
Even though it's not rusty it still doesn't look right.

Between the clarity in the letters in his last picture & his feedback, this looks like a good one to stay away from.

Looking at their items, it seems that most if not all "were found in China". Rare items according to description and they sale dozens of them?????? In my opinion this seller sells a lot of repops. Thanks for the "Heads Up" on this sign.

WOW ! It sold for $417.40. He'll probably "discover" a few more of these. Watch for a listing near you ! LOL

Unless this is the diamond in the ruff of all the repo stuff he is selling, which it's not, someone got taken on this.
