You could call them a sign I guess, I think of them being a separate class

Yes there is three of them. This auction is 90% one seller and he had them in his collection. I talked to the man who made the repop pumps, he told me he made 16 of the Tokheims and 6 G&Bs.

Some of them in the Mecum auctions were not stated as such and were passed on as originals. Yes they are stated as repops here, but then why are they not selling repop signs in the auctions and now selling repop pumps ? Is this a slippery slope ?

Man really feel bad for who ever had the some of those pumps. Repro displays not so bad, but starkey and Twin clearvision for $12,000 each ! Oh man, pumps are not the way it seems if there is to be shipping.

Restored pumps... Can't sell em hardly at a collector sale. Better off sending them to a car auction. Had they been unrestored originals they would have brought double on average I bet

True it seems though some of the clock face were still in the hunt. Just can't get over some of the prices on them though. Possibly the old saying, a restored pump in someone's like brand does nothing for others. It just becomes a good core pump.

Yeah, they said it was an add on but it was original. I owned that pump a while back. You can always tell the true displays...they had four steps on the base. Plus no one has ever repop'd the trim below and above the display portion on that style 34 display. 100% legit and someone got a screaming deal.

There were many deals today there. There is just too much stuff coming to market, and I do not care what anyone thinks. Pumps are very hard to move or ship 2000 miles away unless you go. $12,000 for a restored Starkey ? The Harbor sign at 37K and in great shape? Lots of the same stuff the last few years, different pieces just same items. I think that this will come back to bite the auction companies also. I know I add the commission before I bid to see where it is actually at.

From what I can observe way too many big dollar pieces coming out in too short of a time, In the last 24 months Kyle Moore, Mike Wurley, Vern Walker and so many others. Even the most deep pocketed need time to breath and refill their discretionary accounts. If the collections keep coming out you will see prices continue to be depressed. It's the same in the car hobby. I've ridden cars up and down so long it feels like a roller coaster.
