I thought it had been awhile since I posted a new, old tin sign. Nearly three months. I was commenting on Spriteboy's sweet red & yellow signage earlier today, and failed to note I do now have one which fits that bill. I've long wanted one of these rising sun signs. I finally acquired this one on a negotiated eBay BIN deal last week. The 8-Pack recently held a sidebar debating pros and cons of eBay. We didn't cover "shipping damage" as a con. It is a factor and I experienced it here. This thin gauge embossed sign was not properly packaged and heavy box damage via USPS indicated an ugly sight to come. When I pulled the sign out, it had one corner bent completely back like a dog-ear, as well as a significant overall wave effect. I was able to straighten out the bends, but lost some paint in the process. In the end, I hung it, and couldn't bare to take it down, so decided to accept the additional imperfections. It belongs.
