So what kind of repop has an actual fraudulent date stamped on the sign? Isn't that highly usual?

Less common now, for the US manufacturers to do it. These are older reproductions the new versions of these signs don't have the date on them anymore. Off the top of my head, several more come to mind; Texaco No Smoking signs, I believe Pure pump plates, some Gargoyle signs.

Doesn't take much homework to protect oneself from falling prey to one of these sales.

I must have a fortune hanging on the wall. I paid 2 bucks for one of these signs about 20 years ago and hung it on the wall. The other week I was cleaning up and I found I had another. I hung it on top of the one already on the wall. Both are the earlier dated fakes.

PS. mine are mint !!!!!!
