Randy,

To my understanding the transition was pretty much completed by 40' (ish). I have a few pump plates from 40' with the white T.

Here are pictures of my sign.

I think these no smoking signs were reproduced with veribrite stamped on the back. 44 does seem late for a black T and like Jamie said 39ish seems to be the latest date i have seen also...might have seen a 41 once. There are so many repro versions of these no smoking signs I have passed on many for sale just because of this. Even Jamie and I were unsure of one that came up at auction and did not feel confident in the authenticity.

Scott's globe book list '46 as the change over from
blk T to white T . My 3/40 diesel is white T.
was there an extended transition period to change from
black to white? Picture of back of subject no smoking sign
with a date of 11-15-44 veribrite. I think tankar & I have the same possible repo..

I'm not to much in shock because I've always kinda suspected a possibility with that piece, like I mentioned
at the start of this post - now we know - any black T in
this style of No Smoking always has made me wonder.. cool
