RE:Massey signs

Here's another Fermec sign - this time from their Training Centre just before it was demolished.  Fermec did have a presence in N America and were more recently taken into the Terex fold which is no doubt well represented in N America.

RE:Massey signs

Was there a metal or porcelain to be looking for?

RE:Massey signs

Your Wallis K tractor and sign look's to be in a very nice warm place, a very nice detailed sign which reminds me of the "Wallis" flags Steve and Sandy Miller got done a few years ago.

Here is another sign which would look good hanging above your tractor when you find one.

RE:Massey signs

Well, I don't have any rare signs, but just thought I would share my neon signs commissioned by Gary E. flanking my Better Build Farm Equipment sign.  Also need to retake photos at night when there isn't all that daylight coming in through the side light panels...

RE:Massey signs

John,

Nice to see some more signs on show - so the neon signs are new new stock??  Very effective anyway.

Have just been down to my shed to take some more photos of signs to keep the thread going through the next few days.  We have had 6 weeks of dreadfully stormy and wet weather and the ground is thoroughly saturated - we no longer have mud but rather liquid slurry flowing downhill.  Coastal railways were washed away in the south of England last night and we have another storm rolling in for tonight - life goes on - great weather for ducks!

RE:Massey signs

jwb

Your winter shed clean up and tractor re arranging all looks very smart and well organised, your sign and neons compliment the excellent display. Curious what signs you have above your "U" frames?

Here is another large Britsih dealers sign, this is an aliminium sign, with age it shows signs of blistering through the paint.

RE:Massey signs

Here's quite an old MH sign - not in the best of condition but very rare so worth keeping.
It is made of quite thick sheet tin or steel or something like that

RE:Massey signs

John,

The sign you have just posted with the mower on, is it single or double sided?

I  have a pair of them here with a mower on one side and grain binder on the other, note how the lettering is at the top on one side and bottom of the other.

Yes they are quite rare, not come across any others but now I am curious if there is a single sided  version.

Malcolm.
