1940's Salesman Sample Billboard NY State Route Road Sign

How cool is this? An original salesman sample Billboard Advertising Sign! Currently on eBay with starting bid of $ 499.99 with reserve.

Here's the seller's description: "The story was told that this hung in a Bus Station in the city. It looks to be from the Monticello Chamber of Commerce Advertising the Trip on NEW YORK STATE ROUTE 17K up to Monticello, NY. This is amazing, it looks to be all handmade by a skilled hand. The wooden frame and lattice work is identical to an OLD Real Full Size Billboard. The Sign surface appears to be an old advertising for soemthign else at one time but the PAINT IS AMAZING!! Note the crazing and aligatoring to eh paint surface, simply GREAT!! This can stand or hang! One of a KIND, OOAK!!!. Monticello, NY is where the proposed newest casinos are slated to be made."
