New York, June 19 (ANI): A vintage street sign that had once marked an intersection on Wall Street near the New York Stock Exchange is to be auctioned off at Christie's.

The enamel "Broad St." and "Wall St." sign, which stood in front of the former headquarters of J.P. Morgan and Company, will be offered on June 22, the New York Post reported.

The auctioneer's presale estimate has been put at 60,000 dollars to 80,000 dollars.

The intersection was the scene of a 1920 Wall Street bombing that killed 38 people and injured hundreds. Shrapnel marks are visible on the sign.

Christie's says the sign went up in the late 19th century and came down sometime after the bombing.

It recently was shown at the Museum of American Finance. (ANI)
