I have no idea what it's worth and I don't really collect a lot of Michigan stuff, but I like it!

What's it made out of, plastic?

I don't collect Frankenmuth stuff but I see it all the time at shows given my location. I do not recall seeing this one before. What are its dimensions?
Focus: Cones and flats from MI, South Bend, Fort Wayne, and Toledo. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

From the pictures it looks to be composite.

I'm really surprised I didn't get more feedback on this sign. Does that mean it is pretty rare?

Here's a few more images that I received from the owner. Looks like there is some damage to the feet back it isn't real bad.

Jim,

Frankenmuth made tons of different dachshund advertising. Many different chalk statues, and figural wall-hanging signs...the one you pictured is a tougher variation, but there are so many similar ones, that I don't think it would fetch a huge premium. My best estimate of value is $50 to $75.
