Yes, many questionable things there for sure. One man's likes and another's ruined sign. Same with the common pumps for sure. The twin's cylinders are a clear signal when looking at them.

Actually if you look at the auction only about 8 items brought near top range of estimate. Everything else brought at low estimate or below. I was absolutely amazed. There were a decent number of altered signs, but there were also a huge quanity of untouched pieces. And abunch of those went cheap. I scored a couple double-sided neons and paid half of what I thought i would. I feel bad for the owner. I think he chose the wrong auctioneer and wrong location. Fortunately I was able to have everything privately hauled so I'm not having to pay a shipper. I do think the buyers premium that they charge is crazy even for on-site bidders.
