Here is some history on that sign. Hauseman Garage was the garage my family always went to to get the bolens and troy bilts worked on. It was originally up on hill church road outside Boyertown, Pa. The owner Leonard Hauseman went out of business because he was getting pretty up in years. It is only 6 miles from my house. Im assuming you are buying this from the fella Sam let us know about because he is really not to far away, and when he had auction lots of people came out to get all the bolens parts he had. Ever since Hauseman closed his doors I have been doing all the work on our troy bilt's and stuff. Both myslef and my family knew Hauseman very well, he lives right across the street from the shop. The place still stands today Im not exactly sure of what it is being used as though. Glad to see the sign being put to use, I still remember it hanging in the shop.

Nice sign Bob. I myself have an original "Springfield Authorized Parts & Service" metal sign in my shop, been wanting to get a sign for all the brands but thats tough cause the "Case Garden Tractors" sign are always $200+. And some of the tractors I have are rare enough on their own.
