Did not want to piggy -back any more on "Britax" thread , not fair to Mark ,  This Wincarnis sign came from the same batch of 8 signs as the one I posted on behalf of Mr .G yesterday. Briefly , in the late 1990's , "CARTERS" and myself went to a farm near York to look at 10 of these signs which along with 2 Wincarnis "nurse" signs, were up for sale . There were also some Tangye Oil Engine signs , but they didn't at the time inspire us . Anyway , we ended up with 8 signs  , one was already spoken for and the other was beyond our pocket ,if you like . We had a friend with a van , so we gave him the worst sign ,which had cost £50 ,and he brought them all back to Sheffield for us , because that's what you did in those days .  Best deal Chris and I ever did , "Happy Days"

Great story, somewhere, someplace there are new old stock signs stored away just waiting to be discovered. A few years back, I bought a couple of small new stock mobil shields that were found under some floor boards.

 I will never discover something for free Mark. It's gone a bit mad. But at least i have one of Marcus' signs he left behind. I love my Winnie. I suppose that's all that matters.

Same here MrG, we just have to fork out when it’s something nice, which is getting harder these days to find.
Still, that’s the joy of the chase.
Once you find it and buy it, it’s onto the next!
