That one is bad, but at least it still holds its original shape, unlike some other notable ones here...

Absolutely.  Your comment is gooder then most, if not the goodest.

This has to be near the top of the list of worst condition signs. It is worster then most on this thread, if not the worstest. And the Buy It Now is $300.

The sign is entirely readable. And the seller may realize that the patina on the surface is what may sell that sign. I disagree on it being the worst or "worstest". You can't add more to the word "worst." It's like being more pregnant, or more dead.  ;D
Anyway...If the price was right, I'd love to display this sign on my wall.

Your comment is definitely not the Bestest, it's the Worstest™.

Ha! I Trademarked it, you can't use it anymore! ;D

Good question. It's one sided with no holes for mounting. May have been in a frame? There doesn't appear to have had a flange removed.

If the buyer wants patina, that thing certainly delivers!
