Just wanted to post a couple of pics of my first freestyling pick. I have bought from estate auctions and other places, but this was my first time actually "freestyling". I bought this sign from a gentleman who had it hanging on his automotive garage, for a good price I believe. It measures 65" in diameter, is double-sided porcelain and has very vibrant colors.The majority of the rust is on the outer edge, except the bullet hole in the "G". It is also in its original hanging rack. I need some advice. Leave it in the rack? Im guessing yes. Any ideas on value? Any advice is very welcome. How did I do? I believe it is from 1949 as there is one just like it, albeit in better condition, on Ebay. Is it a rare piece?

    Looks great bass . I don't have any ideas of value , but Mike n Frank have paid some good $$$'s for some signs that look alot rougher.Bummer that the bottom below "U.S. Patent " is so bad , have seen "dates" on some of theirs there. Great Pick , Thanks for showing it to us.
