I think there are good deals to be had on eBay with a lot of looking and a little luck. This nifty - but dirty! - celluloid sign from the 50's was put up for auction recently. I took a chance and snagged it for $30 total. I remembered earlycoke had previously suggested a Mernier's low abrasive auto polish to clean and remove scratches from these signs. Well, it really did the trick. This sign was covered in so much grime, which seems to have protected it. She cleaned up minty-fresh, a real beauty! Backside just as nice as frontside. The hanger string even looks to be original. I intended to try to flip this one for a few $, but - no way - it's now hanging on my wall.
Hope it's all going good folks.
Best Regards, Dave
