    This sign is about 18" Wide by 10" in height depending on if you count the frame. Anheuser Busch St Louis Missouri is stamped on the transformer.

    Does anyone know the age of this Neon Sign?

    These numbers are on a sticker:
    054-115
    LA-2131

      Most of mine all have either a sticker or metal plate with the mfg. date. This is one of the smaller signs. From my research on my signs I would guess (only my guess) this one is fairly recent. I have one Bud light displayed on my page which is larger. Mine was made in France but looking at the numbers you posted above and the numbers on mine, I would say the 054-115 indicates the voltage entering and leaving the transformer. Sorry I couldn't help more. Thanks for sharing it.

      I bought it in the late 90s and I don't even remember where I got it.

      OK, the Everbrite label lists Greenfield, WI so that narrows down the age a little more. They moved to Greenfield in the late 1980's. There is nothing saying, Official Budweiser item which makes me think it was an item for sale to the general public as opposed to Bud actually providing it to a store or bar room to advertise their product. Everbrite is still in business so you might want to send these pictures to them for an accurate answer.

      I am trying to figure out which of my signs I should keep and which ones I can part with.

      Thanks again!

      Well, I would unload this one. Last photo shows hex head and Phillips head screws. Not a bad thing but bigger and more unusual signs have a greater value. The replacement tubes for this are $20 so go from there.

      Take a look at the metal tag on the transformer and you should see SER with 3 or 4 digits. That is the date of mfg - example, 383 would be March 1983. This only works when you still have the original transformer. Yours looks to be original to the sign. This was a common sign by AB and not very rare at all.

      @fhrjr2, your sign wasn't made in France. When I first started collecting I thought the same thing. A lot of the old transformers were Franceformers made by Scott & Fetzer in Tennessee I believe. http://Www.sfeg.com. Hope this helps. Sign was built in USA. All the newer AB Signs are mass produced in China today.
