Is it proper to understand "show no appreciation of it" in the above as "don't appreciate it?" Yes.

But if you want to look for subtle differences, 'show' just refers to how things 'appear'.

Thanks, Clive.

Thanks to your reminder, is it closer in meaning to "don't seem to appreciate it?"
Hi,

Probably. Depends on what you mean.
