I have this great Lee Riders Denim sign that I'd like to get more info on. I purchased this sign from the old owner of this store, Madison Dry Goods, in Bridgeport, CT. The sign was hanging there in the 1940's. There is no visual sign of rust on the sign. There is some white paint on the frame as pictured. Overall, this is a beautiful large tin sign. It measures 60" x 36". There was just a similiar sign that sold on ebay for $2000. I am trying to figure out it's value, along with the history of the sign. Any information you might provide would be very helpful. This is my first foray into the world of tin signs, and I think I've got a winner here. Thank you in advance for any help!

    As a general rule, in sign collecting, smaller is better then bigger. Most collectors have limited display area.

    Just for kicks search "signs"on ebay then set it to "highest price first" you will be surprised that clothing[jeans coveralls,overalls] signs are good pieces!I would say $1000-1500 and I agree with rocker.Nice sign!
