Up for sale for a friend is an extremely rare piece of advertising and neon sign history. This is an "new" never used, NOS Insco "Lit Writer" that allowed a business to interchange pre manufactured neon letters to say whatever the company wished to display and/or advertise. This company was only in business from the 1956 to 1959 period in Piqua, Ohio. (See following link to Piqua Ohio Public Library, which houses the company's documents:) http://www1.youseemore.com/piqua/contentpages.asp?loc=847 I acquired this from a friend whose father had a sign company near Lake Erie, in Pa., up to the 1970s. It is in as new SUPERB original condition! Box is 42 inches long, 5 inches high, and 4 inches wide. Weighs 25 lbs. I was able to get with another sign collector who had bought several boxes of also new NOS letters for these signs, from a closed sign company in Michigan. Thus you are getting a BRAND NEW 1956-59 sign and BRAND NEW 1956-59 neon letters, numbers and spacers! I put the DUESENBERG- spacer, letters in the sign yesterday and turned it on, for the first time in the sign and both worked perfectly! You will probably NEVER get a chance like this again. It will be shipped to you in its original cardboard shipping box! Any company, business and or car or boat or motorcycle dealership could have bought these in the 1950s and 1960s and installed letters to say whatever you wish it to say. GREAT to display as a 1930s 1940s 1950s and or 1960s car dealership sign with your favorite marquee or name of your business. You can mix and match the 11 letters and numbers with spacers, so you can put in 2 words, or a 10 letter and number sign and one spacer that doesn't light up,a 9 letter or number sign with 2 spacers that don't light up, etc. Just use your imagination! Get out a pad of paper and start writing out names. For example 63 spacer CORVETTE is 11 letters. ROAD spacer RUNNER is 11 spaces. And on and on! Price is only $800 for the board and the 11 letters. What a GREAT gift for your car guy! Buyer gets his or her choice of 11 letters, numbers, or non light up spacers. Shipping is an additional $60.00. The shipping is for 2 boxes, as I will be shipping the sign from here in Ocala, Fla. and the letters/numbers/spacers will come from near Boston Mass. Feel free to ask questions. DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! These are as rare as hens teeth,let alone brand new! George Albright gnalbright@gmail.com cell 352 843 1624 10-4 weekdays EST.
