One other thing I am noticing with this sign pole...I think it was a Texaco sign pole that was cut and formatted and then had welded plates to fit the Standard ring.
Anyone else see this? Where the pole meets the ring, if is not the normal Standard pole...unless I am wrong.
I would agree with your observation. Most Standard pole supports had the slight curve with the one little ‘step’ in it. The station must’ve changed brands and they improvised.
BTW, I just sold a porcelain flame holder for that style of sign a few months ago, if you want to see what it looks like (they also had different styles on different signs.... glass flame, plastic flame, porcelain flat flame)....http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Main=129621&Number=746843#Post746843
