It has 2 of the major red flags to me.......1. perfect white back. 2. perfect holes that are missing the grommets...I'd give 10 to 1 it's a reproduction.

Didn't think so. I only know of a 48 inch round and 48 inch keyhole.

I would not take a chance on it without seeing it for the above mentioned reasons. These are rare old signs and this just looks too good and with a white back and no marks on it.


Drive with Care and Buy Sinclair!! I buy Sinclair globes, signs, cans, ect.

Seller has ended the auction. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't this seller been discussed on here before for selling repros?

Look how sloppy the letters are...looks just as bad as the 48" HC repro the "c" shown in the listing is a good example.
