Hi all, I am looking at purchasing these signs and the seller is asking $300 for the Santa Fe sign and $700 for the GN sign. Both of those values seem high to me after doing a bit of research. It has also been brought to my attention that the Santa Fe sign may be a fantasy piece and not an authentic sign, after looking at the font and the cross I am leaning towards the Santa Fe sign being a fantasy piece unfortunately. If anyone has any insight to it being authentic please do tell.
As for the GN sign, it is in pretty good condition but I’m just not sure what I should be paying for a 36” fiberglass sign, any thoughts?
