This sign is on CL. I am curious about since it has the Texlite Dallas at the bottom. Is it legit and about what would the date of use be?
Thanks

Yes, it is the real deal however it is the magnolia or southwest version. These are about an inch larger. Like 12" x 13.5". Not 12" x 12". West coast have the black border

Yes magnolia region. Nice clean open "a" sign. Little 000 steel wool around the edge will take off the black/brown stuff.

The sign is actually 13 1/2 x 12" and supposedly came out of a gas station in southern Oklahoma. So I guess this would make it a southwest version?
