Seen this at the route 32 auction at Iowa Gas. Was really sceptical about the sign the face to me is wrong. Please educate me if I'm right or wrong in my assumption. I've purchased plenty of items from this company and have always been satisfied. But now I feel I might need to look a lot harder before I purchase any more. Thanks

Nobody has an answer if this was real or not and why?

Really cant give a opinion or fact with a image size provided. Some of the minute man signs did have a pale face.but really cant expand image to see any definition that would lead to real or otherwise. On pic provided nothing is leading to negative opinion. But may be partial restored face because thats a common target sign most have rock or bullet damage in man.

Yes, it’s real and correct. These signs had a couple of different styles of Minutemen. I believe this to be the slightly less desirable one from the sales I’ve seen.

Thanks for the reply. The only ones I've seen with this face style have been from India on eBay. I suppose there is a 30" and a 26" size then ?

It's correct. I've owned one in the past. Different style and not the litho used on the smaller minute man signs.

Thank you for all your replies. I guess it's real. Not one I would get the face on others looks 10 times better.
