Hello All
Just acquired an old cast iron sing sided cross buck. Cast iron for sure. Not sure how to post pictures here so I can best describe it this way; each leg of the “X” is about 30” long. It is or coursed embossed if that is the right way to describe it. Two questions if I may please? Will I devalue the sign by wire brushing and painting it (white background black letters) and second, what is a usual value for such a cross buck? Many thanks. New here. Thanks for any and all thoughts
