Is there much demand for large signs. Seen a near mint early union 76 round porcelain but it was 5 foot. Some small chipping to a few spots on rim but otherwise like new. What would this be worth and is there much demand?

Tough sell out here from what I've seen. I've paid between 150-200.00 for them in the wilds of San Luis Obispo County. Most people can't display them. Who knows though? Might just find the right buyer on eBay with a big shop or barn that needs decorating.

Got it. Don't know what its worth since I am getting so many different variance in price, It looks near mint with just a few tiny thin chips along rim.

five foot Union 76 will bring between $200 to $500 and there are a ton of guys with big shops up this way. Bring it to the Escalon bash in Northern CA near Turlock and it will sell if priced right. March 7 and 8. I don't know but I guess things go cheaper in San Luis Obispo County????????? Certainly not real estate. Ted

The prices quoted are about right for the bigger signs, I never paid more than $400.00 for any of these. The lights on the poles cost almost as much as the signs. If I were closer to Calif.I would be glad to add it to this bunch. Glad you went for it, never let a sign escape. Norm.
