New York, May 20(ANI): Auction house, Christie's, is reportedly planning to sell a century-old Wall Street street sign on June 22.

According to reports, Christie's will auction off the cobalt-blue porcelain street sign, framed in wrought iron.

It stood on the corner of Wall and Broad Streets and dates somewhere between the 1890s and the 1920s.

Christie's estimates that the sign could sell between 60,000 and 80,000 dollars, but a serious collector might be willing to bid higher.

Wall Street is a street in Lower Manhattan, New York. It was the first permanent home of the New York Stock Exchange, and over time Wall Street became the name of the surrounding geographic neighborhood.

Wall Street is also shorthand for the "influential financial interests" of the American financial industry, which is centered in the New York area.

Several major U.S. stock and other exchanges remain headquartered on Wall Street and in the Financial District, including the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, NYMEX, and NYBOT. (ANI)
