Double-Sided Veedol Starburst Sign - Authenticity - Sat Jan 12 2019 09:46 PM

Seen this sign going unsold for the last few months and was curious as to everyone’s opinion of it. I’ve seen very similar signs as far as being this shape, hole location, size and double-sided from Veedol in Europe but have never seen this exact variation. Selling out of Canada though it is unlike any Canadian Veedol sign I have seen. I’m lost on this one, what you guys think?

Probably a Canadian can rack sign, similar to the one in the photo of a Calgary, Alberta station from the 1930s. Rack in the photo is the same as mine though I have a later sign. When people ask me about my Veedol sign, I tell them that the oil cans were sealed by hermits. Funny that nobody believes me, lol. Cheers, Don.
