Even after reading several old posts on this site regarding the never ending repopped 15" Texaco lubester sign, I still need some guidance on this. Any help would be appreciated:
15" Texaco Lubester 4-36...Original or Repop?

From what I know, this is original. If someone believes otherwise, I would like to hear it.

placement of grommets are correct
trademark is different, shortened in the 30's
*noitce: how one has wider border & how the X & A
cut into the star differently..
*notice black border at bottom of T in center of star
sign of subject: is questionable .. ... cool

Will someone correct me if I'm wrong, are they now making 15" lubester signs? I haven't seen anything but 12" and smaller visible fakes out there.
