I found a Fire Chief cardboard that I have never seen before.
It is dated 10-36
Has anybody seen one like this?
It is double sided

I don't know about the Fire Chief specifically, but the radiator covers aren’t rare in general. Here are a couple of pics of my late friend Lee Smith’s collection.

Not that Randy needs verification...but he is spot on...LOL . John Deere...in my opinion they are not "rare." But they don't show up every day like a Texaco Fire Chief pump plate. I have seen a couple on eBay the last few months. I paid $40 for mine about 15 years ago at the Portland Swap Meet. Alan, that is a most impressive collection/display you have.

I wish I could claim ownership of them! But they were my friend Lee Smiths. He passed away a couple of years ago, and his collection was sold at auction. He had an incredible collection. Sorry if i'm stealing this thread.

You’re not stealing this thread at all. I definitely think you helped the original poster, and taught the rest of us a lot. Nice of you to post those pictures. Never seen all of those before.
