I'm looking at getting this Golden Shell porcelain sign. The seller isn't sure if it's real or not and I'm not very familiar with Shell pump plates. He said he's had it a while. Any info is appreciated!

Nice looking sign. But I question it also. But hard to say with out seeing the back that might help. Good luck.


Always looking for grizzly gasoline stuff, or any Montana gas and oil stuff.

Happened to come across similar signs to that in original post. Looks like they tried to fill in the holes. Also, lacks the line details evident in hancock-oil's pic (thanks for sharing the pic!).
