This was used at my father and grandfather's shop "Bunny Haire" in Nyack, NY. Then it hung on the wall in my dad's garage in upstate NY for years and years. He passed away, and left me the sign, I was curious if someone could tell me the value, as well as if it is rare. I don't wanna sell it, I just wanna know more about it. Thanks!!!

    This is a fairly rare sign, I am assuming it is a porcelain sign. It would help to know the demensions, and to see a picture of the back.

    Here's one that sold recently in very poor condition. In the condition your sign is in it should be worth $2500 or more.

    I will get a pic of the back in the next day or 2. It is porcelain, and I think its about a 3 or 4 foot wingspan on the "A". Thank you for the info!

    Yep! U have a very cool 4' Flying A embossed single sided sign. We have been anxiously looking for one of these for our collection at aaaLakeside storage in
    Provo, Ut. My son and I are crazy hobby collectors and can't seem to get enough cool signs. Flying A was the gas Brand for TYDOL Oil Co of NJ. The signs like yours sell for $1500-$3000 these days, which is nuts! Rich collectors and programs like Pickers have driven the prices out of sight for hobby collectors like us, but the fun is in the hunt. If u ever see one for sale we are looking for one for our crazy collection.
    Thx
