I don't know much about it. Only that it came from my grandfather-in-law's Texaco station. He had the station(s) in the West from about the 50s to the 80s (give or take a little.) It's in pretty good condition. All original. The grommets are a bit rusty and missing some of the bits on the backs. The paint is scratched and chipped in a few areas, but very minor.

Any ideas on age and value?

Thanks.

IMO you have a reproduction there. Worth maybe $15.00.

the above statement is correct-
the black T dates to the early 40's
the mounting holes are not correct-
Pictured below is the Real McCoy-
Texaco was pretty good at dating there signs-
notice the white T in model pictured.. cool

I am also assuming, there was no such sign from the 40s when the black T was used?

Randy,

44' seems a bit late for the Black T. I have one dated 39' (in the front and will take pictures of it and post them in a few).
