Nicest one I’ve personally ever seen. None of the typical hazing. $4800 and I won’t move a penny. Definitely investment grade. Thanks for looking!

I’ve had a couple questions about a maker’s mark. The sign says “Nesco Inc., Signs N.Y. Denver” in the lower left and “Property of Powerine Co.” in the lower right.

Yeah it looks fine. Just different than the ones made by Wolverine sign Co here in Michigan. This is a Wolverine-made Power-Lube sign in an original mounting bracket (I added new angle iron for the base though). The Nesco signs are more orange and the Wolverine are more yellow or golden. Biggest difference though is that on the Wolverine signs, the text is outlined in white. I always thought that really set the sign off. It's a great sign from either maker though.

That's pretty. Is that how the stands looked Brian. Wouldn't mind making myself one.

Yeah John, this is an original Powerine stand. The red and white Powerine sign was in the stand when I bought it. I put my Power-Lube sign in there instead. I'm thinking of making a run of these to sell. I think there are several 20x28 inch signs that you could put in a frame like this to display.
