Orig 1940's Lighted Dealership Sign Aero Craft Boats NR

Original late 1940's or early 1950's lighted dealership sign for Aero Craft by Harwill, Inc. out of Bay City, Michigan for their aluminum boats. This is a glass front sign with all metal surround an light in back. It measures 4" x 9 1/2" across the back w the light goes in and is 6" deep and designed to be placed on a counter or it could have been hung in a window. It is 8" x 16" across the glass front. The metal frame around the glass is rusty but the rest of the metal box retains original paint finish and manufacturers decal from Telescreen, although the top were it was heated by the light appears to be baked. The decal is all t and I have not tried cleaning it. The glass front has some lifting/flaking of the dark blue at the bottom only and appears to be about as much as it will go but I would consider spraying a clear over it to hold it in place. I have not cleaned or polished it except to get the dust off. The light works and graphics are great as can be seen. Not sure if it blinked or was supposed to blink according to the fixture. These types of signs are very hard to come by and I am listing it with no reserve. I am quoting shipping but I will adjust it up or down when final desination is known and proise to charge ONLY what the post office wuotes with no extras for packing or handling.
