Hi Guys,

I know this should maybe be in the memorabilia section, but this is not a piece of my memorabilia and was looking for a quick answer and know this section gets more views. Wondering if anyone has seen this sign before. Has 01984 on the back, so guessing maybe it was something Winchester (if not a repro) made back at that time. Wondering if original, and rough value. Was thinking of picking it up for the gun room.

I agree with Bob. Plus there appear to be no copyright markings on the piece.

Maybe it is a repro then. Waiting for photos of the back of the sign. Don’t know if there are more markings on back than just the 01984. Still pretty nice looking sign for the "cave" even if repro, if price is right.

Must people when referring to "Repo" generally mean Reproduction. I would imagine that this is more someone’s Fantasy Item that they made. But I could be wrong. Its not of the typical collector type sign of the Pre-WWII era or like. Maybe a modern sign from the 1980s or 90s. But I’m thinking someone’s back garage type work. Don’t get me wrong, its a nice sign.

Sincerely,
Maverick
