I found these two tin advertising signs at a customer’s business the other day. They are 2-D. The animals and people are raised. Can any of you experts on this kind of stuff tell me they if they are originals or reproduction? I was thinking being they were 2-D they might be old originals. Thanks for the help.Winchester-Tin-Ad.jpegImage EnlargerColt-tin-ad.jpegImage Enlarger

REPROS!  These kinds of tin signs were being repro’d 40 or 50 yrs ago, so some of them have now acquired an appearance of age.

Thank you Clarence for letting me know. If they would have been originals, I was going to go back and see if the person would be willing to sale them. Good to know.
