Default 1920's REACH Baseball 2-Sided Sign

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1920s-REACH-...vip=true&rt=nc


Anyone know if this was an original vintage sign, or a more modern reproduction?

From 2 previous examples at auction it doesn't look the same as those, maybe the paint or something. The seller sells a lot of signs, so that's always a plus but quite a few have those "bullet marks or whatever they are" all over them, not sure if real or added to make it look older.

I'm just guessing so if anyone has more knowledge or opinion please jump in. Could be fine for all I know.

Looks fake. Note how the letters in "Official American League Ball" look pixelated like they were printed from a low resolution computer file (which it probably was). No reason a hundred year old sign would look like that.

Its a fake. That sign was never made in porcelain only painted tin. The one from Nate Sanders is mine.

Vintage exposed metal with no to little rust should be a glaring clue.

The rust/sign could have been cleaned up but with that being said, the paint chips/exposed metal looks too patterned to me like they were deliberately done.
