Another interesting, recent, retired sign from the sign man. This time from the Volunteer State. Those signs are posted along with the route number on scenic routes throughout the state. This 12" high and 24" wide aluminum sign is made with "high intensity" fully screened reflective sheeting and features the state bird, the mockingbird (WOW!). The sign is in fair, USED condition and does not lay entirely flat. It was bent and I straightened it to being almost flat. It was obtained legally from scrap.

Please see my other auctions. You may also contact me for other signs available, particularly from British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
All my signs have been obtained WITHIN the state that posts this particular sign. Most of them have actually been on the pole, tfore been USED. In cases w my signs are UNUSED, they still originate from w they are normally posted and w they were intended for use. My unused signs are all "leftover, phased-out stock". NONE of my signs have been "made to order" in one single location claiming to make them for various states. You get the real deal only from the sign man.
I see myself forced to make this clear because of the proliferation of signs on e-bay which are claimed to be "originals". If you want to separate the wheat from the chaff of fakes, try to exclude certain keywords such as "new", "street", etc. from your search mode. You can do that by simply adding the minus sign in front of the word you want to exclude.
PLEASE, do NOT send payment before I send the invoice or contact you otherwise.
Concerning SHIPPING: Winning bidder pays only ACTUAL postage rounded up to the nearest dollar. I try to ship the most economical way via USPS. Insurance is optional, but seller cannot be responsible for any uninsured items lost in the mail. However, that has never happened to me on a sign shipment, even overseas. Since the shipping calculator on e-bay does not properly reflect shipping charges because of the item's size, I will have to calculate each shipment once I know w it is going. Happy to combine multiple items! Also, I am frequently on the road, and will ship from wver I am at the time your payment clears. Tfore shipping rates may vary slightly, but I will always charge what is stated in my invoice, not more. If shipping turns out to be significantly less, I will tape a refund to the back of the item.
TIMELY COMMUNICATION is very important to me. Please respond to e-mails within a day or two.
Personal checks (will wait to clear before shipping item), US Postal Money Orders and other money orders accepted as payment. PayPal also, but NOT preferred. After auction's end I will let you know within a few days the total including shipping. I reserve the right to re-list item if payment is not received within 14 days of close of auction. PLEASE include auction # and e-bay screen name with payment.
