If you can't get enough out of your 5 gallon can, just cut out the sides and sell them as signs, should get
at least 2 signs out of it.

Sadly, that seller and his “sign girl” are notorious for misrepresenting their items and mixing repros and fantasy signs with original signs to fool buyers. The number one excuse I’ve seen made for the seller is that they run through too much inventory to make sure every sign is real. Sadder still, any posts on FB I’ve seen that bring up the misconduct is met with his buddies backing him up and saying he’s a straight up guy, he doesn’t sell fakes, blah blah blah. I don’t get it...

just sent a sign back too these folks this week, this is the sign- was upgrading as there sign had many differences-
thickness of sign, color of pegasus, details in pegasus, alignment of pegasus, shelving of sign, clarity of letters-
a buyer without an original too compare with might have got stung,
that being said I have bought some good original stuff from this seller .. ... cool

I’m sorry to hear that man, I’m glad you didn’t get burned. Hopefully you can find another upgrade without the hassle. I had a similar experience a few years back and went through the entire return process without a word from the seller. The whole thing left a bad taste in my mouth. Previous to that, I’d purchased cans from them that were undoubtedly legit without issue. I can’t imagine the number of people that have gotten burned getting lulled into a false sense of security with the odd mix of fake/fantasy/original.

At the very least, it sounds like he is accepting the return. I haven’t ever bought anything off him or know him but that is at least helpful.

I also have noticed with this EBAY seller that he will have quite a few bids on an item not too long after he lists it. I just don't how that many people have had a chance to view it let alone bid on it.
