Vintage Wall Street Sign to Sell for $60,000 to $80,000
The latest in awesome -- albeit very expensive -- New York signage is an original street sign that was stationed at the intersection of Wall and Broad Streets during the late-19th/early 20th centuries. Christie's is auctioning it off on Tuesday, and expects it to go for between $60,000 and $80,000. Some very lucky financial industry guy snagged it for far less than that at a Chelsea flea market decades ago, but the economy being what it is, he's decided to sell. Marks on the sign indicate that it may even have sustained damage during the Wall Street bombing on September 20, 1920. Awesome, no? History-philes, you may drool. [JDoll]
