Hi All,
A friend asked about a certain Mobil curb sign he had seen in a picture somewhere... it was a Mobiloil with the Pegasus...
were these signs made of two signs in a frame or one double sided sign (also in a frame)?

I tried to find a picture of one in the old "COTM Mobil" tread but not a picture available there... all pics on internet storage sites no longer available, I suppose...

Would appreciate if you could post a picture of your Mobil curb signs for us:-)

Thanks in advance!
Claes

Hi, Claes. I assume this is the sign your friend is asking about. It's usually called a Mobil "Keyhole" curb sign because of the shape. The graphics area is comprised of one double-sided porcelain sign. John

As far as I know all of the Mobil related curb signs are double sided porcelain......

Darrin is correct. Most all curb signs, regardless of brand were double sided. As it would defeat the purpose to have a sign out by the street with advertising only on one side. Same goes for most flange signs.


WTB signs: WHITE STAR, FILMOIL, FLYING A button and Economical Transportation Chevrolet Sign. Also looking for a Wayne 866. Send a PM. Thanks.

Thanks Guys!

Thats probably the one he has seen...

About the sign being two-sided - yes of course - but where I come frome, the curb- and hanging two-sided signs where often made up by two single sided signs mounted back to back to a frame in the early days - later on... 50's.... more often one double sided sign.

Thanks again!
Claes
