Here are two early bolens advertising signs I have

The lighted sign is double sided. The green sign I believe would have hung up at a dealer an held sales brochures

I have never seen any others like them. I got that lighted sign at a swap meet almost 20 years ago. The other one I got off eBay a couple years ago it was on eBay no more than 5mins with a but it now lets just say I didn't hesitate!

You're lucky you started collecting stuff before the "Craze" set in for Garden tractors

Most of the stuff like this has now been bought up or thrown out and if something come's up for sale now you have to fight with 10 other guys in a bidding war.

Good looking signs, it would be neat if you could find a few old brochures to sit in the display racks.

. I have tons of bolens literature but I wouldn't ever leave it sitting in the sign for any length of time
