Frankie, if it's the one I'm thinking of, I saw one at Des Moines for $250. It's a two pieces sign, bolts together in the middle, and has a flange on the bottom/top? to bolt to the building.
Hope this helps.

Frankie,

That sign is the same sign that is used in this picture of a restored station here in colorado. It is a large and heavy sign. If someone wanted to bolt it to the rafters of their shop it would be awesome.

This is a two part sign. One part of it is about 8 feet long while the other is almost 10 feet long for a total of about 18 feet. It does not look like it is that big from the ground. I have one like this and it took two of us to take it down. They are fairly heavy and a little hard to handle. Mine was actually two signs bolted up back to back. I would say 250-300 would be the value of them.
