This sign just sold for good money and I feel someone got burned. I hope it was no one here. The colors are way off! Any more opinions?

I agree with no guarantees on color the photo could be edited. I don't like the back side finish and the mounting hole on the right side is off. I understand there are different manufactures.

The mounting holes look to far in from the edge to me.

same sign, front & back with 2 shots of the front- the green does photograph in a different shade, as far as mounting holes IMO they seem too match- your 2ยข .. ... cool

I had my same concerns on the plate... everything looked good except for the colors. i was assuming & hoping it was just a filter applied to the photo. I bought it, and luckily, I was right... the plate is right as rain.

Great sign Bryce, and I'm glad it ended up being good! I feel you got it for a great price too!

Much better photo, it now has the correct dark green as well.
