As many may know now, I got 2 new signs friday. Cleanup was pretty easy compared to most I have had to clean the paper off of. Glass cleaner, a plastic spreader for scraping, and a little polish. The blue one is stashed behind my gas pump in the den because of "lack of wall space". LOL!

Those are amazingly nice! I know i've never seen them before. Were these just 2 oddball signs that showed up with the paper still on them, or was there a bunch of them in a stack? Back in the 80's I used to find 60's metal Coke signs with the paper still between them in stacks of 10-15 still in the boxes. I would sell them for $20-30 each in near mint cond. Today, you could add another Zero to the prices!
Funny what 25-30 years will do to the values.
