All of this is unfortunate to say the lease. It seems evil-bay is the lead offender, one would think they would try to weed out the impostures but they won't because it is all about the money more then anything. I personally have not bought signs on that site for years.
I'm shocked that someone would be good with paying four times the real cost for this stuff that is make believe. I noticed that the up coming Morphy's auction listed reproductions and the estimate cost ranges are crazy. The next thing will be auctions dedicated to fake signs. Sad but what are we to do? Thank goodness we have oldgas!
