Are you saying you saw a similar sign that sold for $610,000 USA dollars? If so, where?
Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the sign front and back.

Please send a photo of the marks and/or words on the sign.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,
Doris

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. I did not send the pop-up ad/offer.

Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 7 months ago

Please send your photos the email method.

This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:

Just Answer, so they can verify who you are.

.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,

Doris
