I just bought a Conoco Ethyl 30 inch like the one pictured. I am traveling and shipped the sign to myself without taking the actual sign photo. Does anyone know the date and info on these black rimed signs verses the ones that have the dark green rims?
Thanks for any help!

Randy...I saw these on EBay. Mine has all the characteristics of true age. I was wondering if these repops are fashioned after a true legitimate Conoco Sign. That is the bit of info I cannot find.....or am I in a heavy state of denial?!

...Steve, I'm sorry to say - but after seeing the detailed close-up of the Ethyl logo. I'm sure it's a fake frown ...I'd ask for a full refund...

...the characteristics of the fonts used in the Ethyl logo are a dead-on match to the counterfeit from India...it's just been aged...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

One last question...does anyone know if there ever was an original Conoco Sign that this reproduction was made to replicate?
