You never know. I've seen some pretty good auctions end early. Hopefully, she will let it run it's course. She'll get more money if she lets it run its course.

Totally agree...I'd let the auction run it's full duration.
What a beautiful Double sided sign!

OK guys/gals...I got Suzi's permission to post her email!
She is kinda on the fence about ending the auction...Here is here email...
Hello,
Some nice person gave me the link to the gas collector's site. I would like to update
you on the price of the sign. I have been offered 30K from two different buyers...one back
east and the other the next state over. I am very stressed about whether to end it or let
it ride.
Suzi

My response was...
Suzi,
I buy and sell antique signs for a living!
DO NOT END it! Millionaires all over the country are watching this sign and you will sell yourself short! Buyers like us collectors on the website have auction snipers that bid with 7 seconds left in the auction! It will go from 20K+-God only knows in the last 7 seconds! Im sure the same guys that offered 30K will set the bids into their auction snipers and fight for it! I honestly think it will even surpass 30K!
They will tell you that you save ebay fees by ending it BUT dont Suzi!
It might go astronomical!!! 40-50K!!!
You are blessed with 1 of the rarest signs money can buy so dont let an offer set your price! Let the market set the price! I have brought this to the true collectors attention and the consensus is WE ALL want to see it end!
Do you mind if I post this email....The collectors will verify what I say!
Thanks for emailing me! God has blessed YOU! Sit back and enjoy..... smile

PS: If you have any other signs THEN NOW is the time to get them listed! YOU have everyone's attention! LOL Thanks again...

HERE is Suzi's answer to my email!

Thank you so much for your email. Maybe now I can quit shaking.....near tears half the time
about this decision. I will let it ride. And no, I don't mind you posting my email to you.
Thanks so much........I really really appreciate it!
Suzi

The only reason there are offers being made is because they want to eliminate the competition. Those are self serving offers, not in the best interest of the seller. In my opinion; anyone who makes a behind the scenes offer is selfish and willing to go to any lengths to screw everyone else who is playing fair.

Just wondering what the fee is on 25,100. I need to be on the selling end but have never been. It would be tempting to end early when this amount is on the table.
Have to give her thumbs up if she lets it run.

I was told by another that she has turned down $30,000.00 now and will let the auction run.
