Thanks for the photos for comparison.

I'm not seeing a difference. Grommet location as you said, color of backside, square corners, fonts all seem ok to me.

If someone sees something I'm missing, please point it out.

I would say ok back looks right. The fakes I have seen is the motor of the plane looks like a blob of white and not very detailed.

Rust looks right, scratching looks right, back looks right. I’d buy it as legit.

Does anyone remember the Iowa Gas where the guy showed up from Maine with over 20 of them? They found them in the top of a house. There was a line of people waiting their turn to buy one!

Yes, https://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=90508&page=1
100 signs found by a contractor inside a House out east while Renovating it.
He laid each sign out on a tarp and sold for $500 ea. and left with a roll of $50K in his hand.

I was there at Iows Gas when this guy pulled out I believe 30 to 40 if these and they were numbered 1 2 and 3 3s were 1500 2s were 2000 and 1 were 2500 if you bought more than 1 he would take off 10% so guys were teaming up to get the discount. I would have bought 1 but I had earlier bought a conoco and kinda blew my budget.
