Like all of our collectible signs, this vintage neon Ford sign is sold in original, unrestored condition as pictured. This sign has fairly significant dings and chipping to the enamel on the sign face, especially in the upper right corner area and at the left edge of the sign in the center. This type of damage is extremely common in signs that were displayed outdoors, and would commonly be struck by wind blown items during storms.

101 Point Neon And Electrical Restoration
We do not believe in restoring this type of damage because it is our belief, and the prevailing belief among collectors that this type of wear is part of that item's story. Furthermore, there is no correct way to add new porcelain in a manor that would be consistent with a full museum quality restoration, and attempts at these types of restorations are generally frowned upon in the collector community. The only exception to this rule is when dealing with neon and electrical components, which is why we have done a 101 point, museum quality neon restoration.
