Sign #2: Nude bathers, green, front
Sign #2: Nude bathers, green, back

B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute is auctioning these signs, which were actually posted at the Haulover Nude Beach (showing in the background of these photos) in Miami, FL until January 2014. Haulover Beach has consistently been rated one of the ten best nude beaches in the world because of its beautiful, white sand, easy access, lifeguards on duty, and regular monitoring by volunteers to keep it clean and friendly.
Sign #3: Swim suits, blue, front
Sign #3: Swim suits, blue, back
These metal signs are 12" wide by 18" high (30 cm by 46 cm). The text is in either blue or green on a white background. The back of each sign is blank. All of the weathering, rust, scratches, and patina are in as-is condition, exactly as the signs were when they were removed from their original posts. These signs had been in constant use at Haulover Beach for up to 15+ years when they were decommissioned in January 2014 by the Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department and were replaced in service with a new design and color scheme.

Sign #4: Swim suits, blue, front
Sign #4: Swim suits, blue, back
These authentic and collectible signs are extremely rare. Each bid is for one (1) sign, which comes with a certificate of authenticity signed by B.E.A.C.H.E.S., South Florida Free Beaches (SFFB), and the Miami-Dade County Parks Department. Minimum bid for each is $100 for Signs #1 and #2 and $50 for the others. Shipping is an additional cost to the winning bidder.

This auction is a fundraiser for B.E.A.C.H.E.S. Foundation Institute, a 501(c)(3) (U.S. tax-deductible) educational and charitable organization that works to protect, maintain, and improve the physical, social, and legal integrity of naturist (clothing-optional) beaches throughout North America.
