Does anyone know what a Hudson's soap sign with a clock is worth that says WE CLOSE AT TODAY? There is one in the Gallery.

 depends on condition but if very good i would say £500 - £600, there is a rarer version saying cyclists light up to night, i have a mint one of those in my collection but what they are worth im not sure.

Depends on the damage, they would have to be near perfect to fetch 5-600. Most go for around £300 in damaged condition. I would pay Ossie well into 4 figures for his though!

I wouldn't hesitate if a perfect one were to cross my path at £600 but once again there is a big difference between slight damage and perfect.

This one was repatriated with the help of Greg Howard. Not the rarest clock but exceptional condition.

Thanks for your answers and showing photo. I ended up selling the sign in Australia for $1000. I had 3 offers of $1000. My mother did end up finding the sign in a collectors magazine that was year 1989. It said the sign was worth $1100 to $1300 back then. It also states the Hudson soap sign is year 1895.
