Never seen either one sell, but I’ve bought a lot of early Indian / Texaco stuff over the years. I would think they’re in the 2k / pc range. Not very flashy but tough signs to find. Just my two cents.

My gosh, those look like the same two signs the original poster was asking about. Isn't the internet something? John

T-Bird. Not surprised people have messaged you with offers. As a Texaco collector those would be nice to add to any collection. Having said that, I think people are reluctant to throw out prices anymore because the market is so unpredictable. Looking at the various auction houses and even farm auctions you see prices that are astronomical. I have been collecting for about 34 years and feel I know less now that what I did then. A month or so someone asked about a Texaco item value here and i threw out a number and I wasn't even close to what others thought...way too low. Anyway, enjoy the items or good luck with your sale/auction....whichever direction you are going....

Yes, I "WON' == Fool who paid the most $$ for them. Didn't realized it's been that long. One offer was $450.00 each and another said he pay
top dollar $550.00 each. I think he must be a car dealer,because everything he has put on here is premuim dollar plus a surcharge.

Gotta admit I've had difficulty following along on this thread. You're looking for 'ballpark' guesses on a couple signs you bought at an auction in 2016? And you're upset that people offered you less than you paid for them?
Sounds like you've already determined the value in your own mind.

First my apology to Ohio Oil for wasting his time. I don't ask for common pp or other signs that you can find pretty easy at swap meets or auctions, Again I'm sorry.
Trying not to be one of those 80 old farts at swap meets asking for pie in the sky and people just walk away shaking their heads. Last big swap meet I went to was Columbus pre-covid

Randy, as always your opinions are always valued and welcome cool
