    My Dad just passed away in November and I have his business sign that he had for his auto supply. I've been offered $200.00 for it and just wondered if anyone can tell me what it's worth. ? I'm thinking $200.00 is too low... but not sure if I'm thinking this because it so hard to part with... because it was my Dad's. It's 6 foot by 4 foot... so kinda big for me to just keep. this is the info on it. any help with finding info on this would be greatly apprecitated!

      I love the sign, would love to have it, if I had the space for it. That is the problem, is it size. Large signs have limited market because collectors have a hard time finding space to display. But with a little patience eventually right person will come along and may pay your asking price.

      Thanks StihlCollector! do you think it's worth more than $200.00? I was thinking it should be at least $300.00... but then I was told to ask $600.00... and then... my son said it wasn't worth anything... I'm guessing.... any idea?

      It is definetly worth something, lot of automotive, sign, advertising collectors out there. I think 200-250.00 range is a fair price, but as you know really it is only worth what someone is willing to pay. As I said the biggest problem is the size of sign. Yes a lighted sign that size would be very expensive when originally purchased new, but it is not very likely going be purchased by dealer, it will be going to a collector. Hope this helps.
