Ok museums, serious collectors, and hobbyists...this is an original PACKARD SERVICE sign. It is not a cheap japanese or chinese replica.
My Grandfather was a Packard dealer from the 20's until Packard went out in the 50's. This was his Packard issued service sign. The sign was hung outside for years, so of course it shows wear, some character dents, and a bit of rust. This, my friends, is called patina! The sign is 100% original, and has never been touched up or altered. All marks on it came about honestly. Where the red streaks came from I have no idea, but I'm sure IF a person wanted to remove them, it could be done with polish.
The sign is enameled steel, and weighs about 18 lbs. It measures 41.5 inches tall, and 27 inches wide at the widest point.
This is a very rare chance to aquire a true piece of surviving American automobilia. Remember...this is real, not a fake! Grandfather was also a Maxwell dealer...I have one of those signs also. It will be put on depending on how well this does.
Shipping will be done at actual cost to the buyers zip code. It is heavy, and requires what the post office calls a large box.
Please check my feedback...I don't sell junk or mis-represent my items.
Thanks for looking.
