Massey signs

I thought I would start a new thread on SIGNS.  There are many of these encompassing the Ferguson, Massey Ferguson and Massey-Harris marques.

To start with here is a quite long old Massey-Harris sign which I picked up in the east of England bery near to Malcolm's!  There are several sizes of these to be had but I believe that this is one of the larger examples.

RE:Massey signs

Hey John - great thread.  Here is our porcelain sign.  You will see them quite often, but this one is in fairly good condition!

RE:Massey signs

Here's a nice MF tin sign - probaly dates to the 1970s.  I picked it up on one of my trips to N America.

Signing off for a while as I'm Paisley bound tomorrow and looking forward to meeting up again with some of you.  Here's hoping we will be able to report back on some good Massey food!!!

RE:Massey signs

Two beautiful signs from George Smyth.  The wooden border sign did not sell.  The other sign sold to a new owner.

RE:Massey signs

Two nice original British Dealer signs sold recently at the Cheffins end of season vintage auction,

The popular square M-H Dealer sign made £110.00, the M-F one was much more in demand at around £300.00.

There was also one of the very popular M-H Proud Owner Better Built Farm Machinery signs which again made £110.00

Malcolm.

RE:Massey signs

Sorry for my tardiness but I can add a couple of pics to the sign thread. 

The first pic is my neon dealers sign I purchased from one of our friends in Nebraska about 18 months ago.  We had it totally restored but it still has the original working transformer in it.  Ironically, the sign was made in Marion, Indiana about 75 miles for me.   I makes a great security light for the tractor barn!!

The second pic is of two window neon signs I had reproduced by the person who redid my dealers sign.  They are a little different than the originals but still look good in some of the displays around the Eastern half of the US and Canada.  I had 12 sets made so some of you will see them around.

The third pic is of a very nice MF sign I found at Penfield.  It is about 4'x4' metal sign and near perfect!!

RE:Massey signs

Ony and I recently visited Larry Maasdams Heartland Museum and took a few pictures of his magnificent sign collection here are a few I enjoyed.  Some have been seen before others are a little different!!

The first is a beautiful Ferguson neon sign. It is an original sign in perfect condition!!

The second one is a lighted sign cover that again is near perfect.

The third is the large dealer sign. There are several of these out and about but it was a nice addition to the museum.

Thanks Larry for sharing your collection with the world!!  Great museum if you have never been there.  It is a must see when you are in North Central Iowa.  It is worth the stop to just to see the MH Vineyard and MH High Crop!!

We will see.  Nothing you have not seen before, but I think they should be in pretty good condition!!
