This listing is for a set of two John Deere Centennial Dealer Commemorative 100th Anniversary signs or plaques. I’m not an expert in this field so let me tell you what I know, and I would welcome any additional information viewers might like to offer. I corresponded with a man who worked for the John Deere company for 36 years and it was his understanding that the original signs issued to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of John Deere were made of cast copper and later reproductions were done using cast aluminum. Each of the cast aluminum version reproductions weighed in at approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces. I believe the signs I have are made of cast copper or maybe a combination of materials because each of them weighs two pounds and eleven ounces which is significantly heavier than the aluminum. As you can see in the photos, the relief detail and clarity are also consistent with the original dealer issues. The other examples of the two signs I’ve seen show a bar system mounted across the back of the signs with a chain attached for hanging the sign. The backs of the signs I have show marked depressions where holes could be drilled to attach the bar, but they have not been drilled. I think this makes the set I have even more unusual and thus rare. Approximate diameter of each sign is 7 3/4-inches and the thickness of each is 1/4-inch. Please use the photos as your guide. Once again, this is to the best of my ability, the information I’ve been able to find and I welcome viewers input. This set would certainly make a great gift choice or an impressive addition for a collector. I can not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as “gifts” because US and International government regulations prohibit such actions.
