    Hello, I have a few of these nice old signs. This exhibit is the middle example of the different sign's conditions. What is a value for something like this? I have only found one other and it is on an auction site for $1,850.00. One of my signs is alot better condition that that one (I think). But, I am not an appraiser.

      The question is sort of ambiguous as we all know that the old porcelain sign is worth about $50 or less, however the short supply and huge demand changes everything! This cool sign you have can clearly bring a lot of money when you find the person who wants it on their wall instead your wall. The key is finding the right person! Its "worth" what someone will pay for it, and that is called Capitalism. Isn't America great? You can sell an old $50 porcelain sign advertising a Company that is no longer in business for over a thousand dollars! Good luck finding your buyer.
