Can anybody out there date this Pabst sign for me? This is what I have been able to research so far, I believe that it dates pre-prohibition and is between 1909-1919. This is the timeline I used:
1889-Became Pabst
1893-Won Blue Ribbon
1882 to 1926-Put Ribbon on Bottles
1919 to 1933-Prohibition
1906 to 1934-Changed from cork to caps on Bottles
1934-First to put beer in cans

Anybody know what the value of a Pabst sign like this might be? I know it is not mint but, I am sure it is RARE. Look forward to any and all information.

    Very nice and I like the Donnie and marie in background . My Friend that works at pabst mansion never pays a lot for signs for the mansion but I would think he would date it . I will send him the photo ok

    I showed it to Pabst mansion it dates from bottle 1930-1940 . Hope that helps and that was an expert not me :-)

    I'd agree with Manikin, the cap's the dead ringer.

    That's sweet I just bought the same sign in slightly better condition at an auction.
