I would like the forums opinion on whether this is an authentic "Texaco Marine Lubricants" sign. Also would be interested in the value?

Absolutely authentic! Matches my known original perfectly!

On such a stunning example of this sign, I would expect the value to be somewhat higher when placed in a large nationally advertised auction, but those are always guessing games. The value given by the other members is a more realistic and fair value when contemplating the private sale of such a sign.

A nice sign like this; sells itself. In my opinion, no need to give away money to an auction house.

In Canada, most auction houses charge a 20% sellers premium. If at auction this sign sold for $10,000.00 it would still net the seller $8,000.00 after sellers premium is deducted. Only the Auction house is profiting...no net profit to the seller.
