    Default Handmade WWI CP sign

    With my father's belongings, I came across this wonderful sign. I am definitely keeping it, but was curious what the monetary value on an item like this would be? It's hard to research, since this is a fairly unique item. My father was in the Blue Ridge Division

    The text on the mostly complete label on the back of the sign reads:

    "THIS SIGN MADE IN CAMP LEE VIRG...
    ABOUT SEPTEMBER 1917, WAS COMPANY HEADQUA...
    SIGN OUTSIDE ORDERLY ROOM UNTIL MAY 26...
    USED FOR SAME PURPOSE ON "HURON" CROSSING...
    FRANCE ON EVERY ORDERLY ROOM SET UP WHILE...
    FRANCE, ON "TROY" RETURNING, AND IN CAMP DIX...
    N.J. UNTIL DATE OF DISCHARGE, JUNE 17, 1919

    Any thoughts on the item would be interesting to read.

    Great item.
    Like you said hard to put a value on it.
    If brought up for sale by auction it could go to amazing prices.
    If needed to be inssured, it is not replaceable...
    But I would say it might be worth 250 to 350 euro.
