I bought this sign 20+ years ago at an antique store. It is 24" DSP and stamped "2-31" at the bottom of the good side.

I'm sure this is an original Texaco sign and while pretty rough on one side, the rarity factor would seem mitigate some of the condition issues. Considered having it restored, but decided against it.

I have never seen another one and would like to hear thoughts on value in today's market.

Thanks

there are certainly others out there... I have been at auctions and watched 2 sell in the past 2 years. One was at Rich Penn & one at Mecum. They brought $7500 & $11000 but both were in far more desirable condition.

If you did have it restored, I would recommend only having one side done.

As it sits, and just my opinon, id say $1500-2000 on yours due to the condition.

Thanks for info, guys.

I wish those kids who threw rocks at signs 75 years ago would have missed the "bullseye" on this one!
