  6. Thanks Daddy_nobucks. I have tried that but it did not get the brown off of what is suppose to be white.
  7. okay so I got the sign. What would be the best thing to clean it with? It has little black dots all over the sign and they won't come off with the cleaner that I used.

  19. Yea I think I will do that next time I bid online.
  20. I think it is on page 203 the repo pic is on 608. Yea after I got Petretti's guide I figured it was a repo. It looks exactly like the one in ur pic so it probably is a repo then. So are the signs wit...
  21. I noticed that the sign in Petretti's guide 12th edition shows the the bottle in the first sign with no white lettering on the bottle. So are the ones with white lettering on them reproductions or not?
  22. Thanks Signaholic!

  41. The reason I think the one is a reproduction is because it looks like the one on page 608 of Petretti's guide 12th edition. I'm not sure of the exact price but it was under $350 for the pair of them. ...
