That's very nice mick. How much did you pay? Some signs I have seen in the past were not cheap to say the least.

thx guys,
i paid a lot for it, enough money to get really really drunk at the pub anyway!
$400 au , which is about $200 in pounds i guess.
yeah thats more than i ever wouldve paid for a tin sign but i loved it! and anyway, even my limited ariel knowledge tells me its fairly rare, so even if i paid too much, in ten years i wouldnt have, if u know what i mean. i didnt care, i just had to have it lol.
actually i made a mistake there....i dont think u can get drunk for £200 in england at the pub can u?, ive been there and seen the price of your beer! (awesome beer tho, go worthingtons :D )

That don't sound like a bad price at all to me. Shame about the lack of beer tho!
