Zerolene , Vintage Concepts made 100 of them a couple years ago I bought a couple of them ,I only have one now ,and no its not for sale . I would contact info@vcsigns.com maybe they have one left layin in the back room. Just a thought , as to your Question about telling them apart , V.C. Signs said they where exact copys of originals I just assumed that ment size, color,and shape but I have never put my repro up against a real one to verify that. It just looks good on my wall thats all I know.

Vintage concepts did make a copy a couple of years ago. Not the same size as the original. There were 50 of them made. I also bought two and have one I'm going to sell at Fred Stoke's sale next month. If you are interested contact me at my email hotcidr@cox.net. The repop signs are only one side and none of us can afford the real thing any longer, one sold last month for $26,000 plus buyers fee ray

I was contacted by Zerolene who was sending me a check for my reproduction Harbor sign. No check has arrived and I don't have his email address. Can anyone help
