Hi, newbie here,
I bought this a few days ago in private sale and the seller guaranteed it's authenticity. He will refund my $1100 if I want. Can anyone verify it's real. Thanks.

Measures 36" hoof to hoof and 26" wing tip to hoof.

Come on people. Is it a reproduction?
Should I return it and get my money back?

BTW the size is 36" x 28".

Reproduction! Those type signs have clips on the back to mount to a flat surface. There are other problems with that one as well that I wont divulge here for the rip off artists.

Other than the hole placement is there anything in particular that would would make it a repro? For example, edges, paint, size, back, design etc. Be specific please.

I'm really trying to learn. Are there real signs this size (36 x 28) and are there ones that use holes instead of clips to hang? Can someone send me some pics of a real Pegasus this size? Thankyou.
