I have looked through my Texaco books and do not see this sign. Is it real?

I'm far, far from a Texaco expert....but as a sign in general...I'd bet a lot it's real.

I scanned my books, but couldn't find it. With all the fake stuff out there I am getting gun shy.

Bottom portion of an original......... No mounting holes, was cut all along the red border. It's in your books...

Sorry it's not in my buddy's book "A Tour With Texaco " The sign is in the series of Clear, Clean, Golden Signs. 30" X 30" with a 1/2" Red border... I can post a photo if needed ?

I agree,,, just because it's not in a book and no body has seen one on here doesn't make it a fake,,

Doug, as always you came through for me. I thought it was familar, but just not right. I know not everything is in the books, but I didn't want to get "jumped on" by some folks for not trying to do some research before I came here to post.

I think there's two versions of that sign, I'll try to find another photo.

I also asked the seller for dimensions and a photo of the back...
