I shared this on FB a few weeks back and realized not everyone is on FB these days. A few weeks back I made the best discovery I may ever come across in this hobby. (Unfortunately I didn't discover it!) I was able to purchase a never before seen Oilzum flange sign. Not sure if it's a new discovery or not but I wasn't able to find another person who's seen another like it yet? It walked into a shop carried by an old timer who had found it buried in the ground many moons ago! He was looking to sell it and the store owner not being a sign expert took a chance. Well I was very lucky enough to be contacted by the person who bought it who was doing a google search on Oilzum trying to research the sign and came across my name! Well I have had my fair share of signs that were unearthed and this one surely fits the bill. It's not perfect but in wonderful shape for being buried all these years. I had many sleepless nights getting this deal done but as a die hard Oilzum collector there is nothing better. Just wanted to share the story. For all those new guys that think this stuff isn't out there and it's "All dried up" think again. Get those metal detectors out and start hunting.
Mainly focused on Oilzum, Jenney, Harris Oil items & original paint gas pumps.
