Hello, all!
Wondering about the value of my dad's E.K. Myrick Ford dealership sign. It was the first Ford dealership in MS, located in Greenwood. He had other dealerships as time went on, but based on the configuration of the sign, it is believed to be circa 1912, which would make this sign from his original dealership there in Greenwood. It is probably the only yellow Ford dealership sign as well. The reason for the yellow color is explained in this link:

Interesting piece of Mississippi history that we would love to know the value of. Thank you for your input!

Thanks, and sorry for the confusion. It's my dad's sign, but he is an antique dealer, Paul Kilgore, no relation to the fellow who had the sign made.

IMO, $250-350 because of condition. Logo is cool, but still rough. Good luck
