RE:Massey signs

Here are a few very nice Massey related signs at The Massey Music Hall which we admired last year when we had a day in Toronto before heading out to the Auction and Expo.

RE:Massey signs

Also whilst touring around Toronto last August we found some very interesting Massey architecture at the original M-H Head Office building on King Street, now known as"Massey Lofts" the entire building now coverted into 46 condominiums.

RE:Massey signs

What am I not seeing here?? Are these red MF signs worth this kind of money?? Here is a picture of the tin sign recently sold on ebay for $1,911.66  I believe it is the same sign as Gary's and John's they posted earlier, you guys pay anywhere close to this price?

RE:Massey signs

I have noticed over the last few years the interest in genuine original signs continues to grow rapidly, often resulting in some very high auction prices, they seem to appeal to a much wider audiuence of collectors than the specialist make collector, we see antique signs regularly now for decoration of such places like restaurants etc, so guess that's one reason why we have not seen the sign market fluctuate as much as the cast iron seat prices which seems very low at the moment, some very low prices on seats at the recent Cheffins Spring auction.

As with anything and really noticing it with signs, the high prices only encourage more and more repro's. This weekend at a show in Norfolk there was a vast array of recent repro signs (including the rare M-H engine sign) for sale in the gas engine display.
 

It will be interesting to see how the signs sell on this Saturday's M-H auction in MN.

RE:Massey signs

WoW !!!  When this sign showed up on eBay, I threw  what I felt was a decent early bid to keep the cheap guys off.   Well, I am one of the cheap guys because I didn't bid again. The seller has a strong following who purchase his signs.  We all know that those noted to sell quality, or rare items can command stronger prices.   The best thing is I didn't need this so I can watch for a better deal.  Tim

RE:Massey signs

These are canadian glass window signs that went in a lighted frame.  Quite fragile and thus quite rare.
