Been offered this sign (pic is off buys off the week) and i'd say the 1 for sale is a 9. Super color and the flame is still there. Whats it worth ?

You didn't mention whether it was plastic or porcelain? or perhaps another metal painted sign. material is everything when estimating a value in #9 cond.

what do you think of my wife, (pic is off the internet), she looks similar but her hair is different and so are her eyes, she also is older and actually quite different than the picture. Oh, she does have 2 breast though. What do you think

KZ,
Without a picture of the actual woman in question it's tough to come up with an opinion. Condition is important. Any visual flaws? Has any restoration work been done on her? Can she cook?

KZ,
W/O seeing the actual pic of what you have, I recommend you do the trade even IF you have to throw some money in the deal! laugh

HI-JACKED THREAD!

Back on track... I've seen the porcelain 60's-70's priced @ $175-350 price range. Low end for single sided and high end for double sided.

Pricing is only an Opinion as you haven't posted a picture of sign your looking at.
IF you want a Real opinion, post a picture of the Actual Sign in question.

For $750....I'd want it to be on a 9 cond pole w/working lights, delivered! wink

Yes $750 is about 2-3X more than what you'd want to pay.
