Contact the guy and see what he tells you. I have a tough time believing someone would make a canvas, riveted, repop... BUT you never know.

Watch out for this seller. Has tons of phony signs in all catagories- gas, soda, motorcycle, gun, etc. Look at past sales too. A few real items sprinkled in, but lots of worthless fake garbage.


Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

Look at other items. There are several road map designs enlarged into posters. No mention of them being fantasy items and are sold AS IS.

No - it's fake...eBay (and other sites) have some similar digital output onto canvas, or linen, and they're calling them 'old'...


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

this is the reply from the seller when I asked him if it was a original item or a reproduction:

Hello, the sign is not dated, it looks and feels old, but may be an older reprint. Thank you.
