Two more of these signs are being offered through private emails to Canadians collectors by one Johm Sehovic out of Ontario. They are the 36" DSP versions coming out of India with an Ink Stamp.

Poorly copied, and very easy to spot. See reference image linked on page 1 of this thread to see the images of this known fake. It is the exact same sign as illustrated on the left side of the comparison. Being flogged for $4500 each

It's true. I just arrived back from the 2 hour round trip of hoping to purchase the signs and both are India reproductions.

Thanks Randy. I'm kind of computer challenged and have trouble posting links and pictures. Also find it tough to edit anything here when it times you out very quickly.

That would be the suspect sign.

This a new post from the newest member of OLDGAS ( July 9 2015) re- 2 Red Indian signs in question.

Hi everyone, I'm a new member " JohnAngelfire "

Hobbies: Vintage Gas Oil Signs
Location: Buckhorn Ontario
eBay User Name: 8218johns
Your Real First Name: John
Phone Number: 705-657-7674
Your Real Last Name: Sehovic


While searching for information on Red Indian Sign values I found an ad placed by Wes Hague last July for 3 signs and the 36 inch is identical to the 2 I have. The condition is not as good around the mounting holes and the Image is great.
I purchased a 50's cottage resort & marina that was falling apart in 2000 and in a locked room in the Boathouse there were 2 coke machines, these signs and others. Angelfire1.com shows the location and the new Boathouse.
Still trying to figure out how to post these 2 jfsehovic@bell.net

Well, if he lied about the boathouse story, he will lie about anything. He's obviously just trying to gouge some poor soul for these. This is the problem with these darn reproduction signs!

for sure ,there is a very small number of these known . If they are not coming from a reputable spot be wary . I had one sent to me today to authenticate . The fakes can be told, but again I am not going to put on the internet how to do it .

I hope nobody has purchased these signs it is good that people on here are sharing there information. I can say initially I looked into buying one of these signs I talked to the gentleman on the phone he told me the boat house story which he sounded genuinely truthful however once he had forwarded me the pictures it was Very obvious they were fakes now to find he has changed his story I think he bought these signs without doing his homework and now he is trying to recoup his money by sticking someone else with them and that's a shame he initially contacted me as a member of this site and this site not allowing reproductions one could perceive he must be legit? Or so I thought I seriously hope this member is not allowed to continue on this site after his charade has been exposed just goes to show do your due diligence before jumping into a sign purchase but if nothing else this experience helps sharpen your buying skills and Learn from it!
