 Apologies for being an old cynic , but that is yet another faded example of the world's most overrated sign. Why do they nearly always look shabby ? I suppose they'll go mad for it and it'll be yet another triumph of hype over substance.

No need to apologise, I'm the same! They're in my opinion far nicer enamel that I would rather have.

I agree. One of the dullest and most boring looking signs ever made. Depressing colours. Didn’t one of them sell for about £28,000 a few years ago?

I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I've always liked that sign. Everybody likes to bash it, but I'd be proud to display it in my collection. Way more than one of those awful 5 Boys Frys jobbies

Don't think you are going too far out on a limb, Mick . In good nick its a nice sign, a very nice sign but there are so many better signs at a fraction of the alledged worth of the BP winner. The money fetched at one auction £31k seemed to make this popular rare sign into a fabled holy grail with some collectors.

To a certain extent like the 5 boys, its almost like if you collect enamels to a " good " level you have to have a 5 boys in your collection ......again don't get me wrong its a lovely sign ......but would it be in my top 10 I'd have to think about that ?

Hmm ? .................your top ten favourite signs if money was no object !! thats a thought for those long Covid 19 laden TV repeats evenings

I’ve also seen the 30 grander. It is cracking I admit but not for me.
I thought this one might be about the 5 grand mark, but who knows?
I think the Dunlop one with the car and driver on is a better sign albeit larger.
Webb’s factory or Holzapfels for me over the winner.
I’d rather have a coloured 5 boys anyday on my wall.
