Hi, Gang. I don't ask for value help very often. But, I'm stuck of this one because of the corner modifications.

This is a painted tin DELCO BATTERY sign I'm thinking 1940's vintage. It measures 19-3/4" wide by 13-3/4" high. Excellent color and gloss. Appears never to have been outside (may have resided inside a parts store or auto shop).

The issue is the trimming that has been done on all four corners...a little at the top, and more at the bottom).

I have researched RECENT sold auction results for this sign, and they're coming in from $850 to about $1,600. I eliminated the Barrett-Jackson auction result of $2,150 for one of these, since.....it was "Barrett-Jackson". If you know what I mean.

You can readily see the corner trim marks in my photos. Any input on value of the DELCO sign pictured would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. John

I bought a flange like this for 275 5 years ago. The cut outs kills the sign value IMO

I sold a beautiful huge porcelain sign this year that had some cuts in it, ( a little worse than yours but not horrible) . Dropped the value to about 1/3 of what it would have been originally.

That's a shame but still a nice sign. I won't go over $350 to $400. Then make a wood frame to try and make it look like the cut outs belong.


Have gas all the time
