Were the backs of originals white? I hope not, because other than the back being white, the front would have fooled me, a non Gulf collector.

...there are undamaged examples of the exact same signs available on eBay as well...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

these guys just changed their ebay name to "farmbarnfind82"
they were using the ebay name "signsforlife",
this is two guys who own a business building called Bargins and Beyond at 2340 Center Ave, Janesville Wisconsin, selling more of this deceiving garbage, that has been hammered and has rust applied for a original look.
Don't know how the city of Janesville and ebay let this guys get away with this deceiving fraud practices???
These are the type guys that are ruining our hobby especially for the new people getting into the hobby.
This why this webb site is really good on helping with the awareness for this kind of problem and the people behind this problem.
It would be interesting who is manufacturing these signs and wholesaling them,they must have a network of people that buy these fake signs
