I would like to know a little more information about this type of sign. Does it appear to be a procelain sign? If not, does anyone know what type of manufacturing process was used for this sign? After doing some searching about Dr. Pepper's logo changes over the years, I think this one is from the late 1950's-1960's. Does that sound about right? These are the only two pictures I could find of this sign, but does it appear to be an original? It's about 3 ft. tall and 6 ft. wide. What would a sign of this size be worth?

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

    Hello, nice sign. I feel that this sign screams 60's. This logo appeared in the very late 50's and was used through the 60's. I think this sign is silk screened using an enamel paint. Porcelain is a powdered glass fired on at high temps and is usually on a thicker sheet metal. If I owned this one and put it for sale I would ask between 300.00 and 400.00 due to the size.

    Found this sign on the net.
