Original Douglas Advertising Display Card
« on: 03 Jun 2017 at 14:54 »
Just a civilian here but can anyone tell me anything about this advertising shop card?
It's about 20 x 13 inches.
What age is it? What bike is depicted?
Are these common or rare?
How should I go about selling it?
Thanks for any information
Steve

Hi Steve
The model is as shown on the front and rear number plates. EW 350cc of 1926 or 1927. Don't know value.

Hi There

The card might not be an original as I seem to recollect somebody in the late 1960's  reproduced a batch taken off an original.  I think the colours were much intense than a genuine one I remember seeing in the flesh, but that is not to say that the original may well have faded over time.
