Hard for some sellers to give up the Bird in the hand for what Might happen if they let the auction run for the Bird in the Bush.

Wonder when ebay will start charging FVF for high bid when auction was canceled [& not re-listed in 30 days]?

whats your opinions on ending auctions early?
I think its ok as long as there are NO bids.

I knew you guys were talking about that sign even before I copied the number. There must of been 200 people watching that sign. As a seller with a ton of watchers I would never end it early .


see me at Mason Dixon Gas, Spring Carlisle M114-115, and Hershey C4E-35.

I would never end an auction early regardless of the # of watchers.

The watchers are only tire kickers anyway, I have, several times, had 100-200 watchers only to have NO action at all the last day. and the item ending with 3-4 bids

I can assure you Frankin that has it for sale didn't let it go cheap! He deals in these kinds of signs and knows what the value is.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

Buyer wanted to know if he had any more rare signs ! Maybe it was a real sale. That's one that slipped though the cracks

Same sign in both auctions! Its amazing how much better someone can make a sign look with a little effort. Looks like Franklin got the 1st seller to end the auction early, and someone got Franklin to end his auction early. Curious what the sign actually sold for each time!

Just a right time, right minute buy it now, good research John. Thanks everyone, glad you guys got to see the sign, (I personally don't like tombstone styles if it had been a 30-48 round whole different ballgame) no ebay fee's or pay-pal goughing. Regards
