LED ZEPPELIN - HOLLYWOOD SIGN FOR SALE

LED ZEPPELIN - HOLLYWOOD SIGN FOR SALE:


The original 1923 Hollywood sign is up for sale on internet auction site eBay after languishing in storage since 1978.

Bidders lusting after the iconic symbol will need at least $300,000 (GBP174,000) to meet the reserve price, as well as considerable space - the letters stand 13.7 metres (45 feet) high and 137 metres (450 feet) long.

The movie industry trademark boasts graffiti from rock stars LED ZEPPELIN, PINK FLOYD and AEROSMITH, as well as a macabre side - struggling actress PEG ENTWISTLE threw herself off the letter H in 1932.

Current owner producer DAN BLISS says, "This will be your last chance to own one of the world's most famous structures.

"Telling people you own the Hollywood sign is a great ice-breaker."


Yeah, if I could just find some space in my back yard to display this iconic sign :) heheheee.
