I would think a few bidders are placing bids,knowing full well it will sell for more then they bid,just so they can be a part of the auction & see the name of the winning bidder.

I'd rather have this than the Grizzly that didn't meet reserve. Over 30K is my guess.

If this sign is as great as everyone says it is. If I had 20k to spend on a sign, I could probally come up with 40k. How many times in your life will you have the chance to buy this sign in this condition. Next time there is an opportunity it might be 10 years from now, and how much will it fetch then. If you stretch your funds today you will be enjoying a sign that will certainly gain value.


see me at Mason Dixon Gas, Spring Carlisle M114-115, and Hershey C4E-35.

Not necessarily...They said the same thing about 950 Wurlitzers before 1992. Try to get $30,000 for one today. 1015's were bringing over $10,000...not now. Dave

It could sit at that price until the end and then a select few will battle it out. I have to agree on the shipping though...seems quite cheap. LOL!

I'm gonna say Between $19-22K. But what is a sign like this truly worth and do we appraise it based on the end result of this auction or do we just assume that somebody overpaid just to have the piece in their collection or perhaps to flip it for possibly more?

As far as shipping he says he will give you the total once the destination is known and has a reserve on it, because he says he does not know the value of it. How can you put a reserve if you dont know the value!?

Sellers usually put a reserve to protect their initial investment and it is not an indication of the value of the item.

If I had seen this sign privately a week ago, I would not have known it was such a desirable and valuable sign. Just goes to show that I'm still learning.
