The 10 minute random grinder marks alone on it's backside is enough to deter me to not place a single bid on this.....LOL.

Thanks for the discussion, it's enlightening-I am not a Texaco guy but there are enough general lessons there that it bears repeating a few times a year for new members like myself. What about the Santa Fe sign in the background sitting precariously directly on its edge on concrete? Rough way to treat a valuable sign!

The trade mark should always tell you to stay away from any of those signs.


Remember you are only as good as your help
If you don't make any noise no one will hear you!

Its not the first time oldgas has schooled amistadi on selling repops.

He shows a lot of class by pulling the auction, maybe he can get his $$$$ back

The real lesson learned here is that you cant possibly know everything, no matter how long you have been in the hobby.

Hi There

I have ended the auction. I hate to know that signs like these are being made in this unbelievable looking original condition and dated. I would never sell a repop as original. The sign god as some one said on old gas made a honest mistake. I purchased these signs on ebay and these signs look as right as rain. Its no wonder I want to get rid of every thing I own in porcelain. I'm sorry and I truly had no idea they are not real. I still can not believe it after seeing them in real life. They look and feel as nice as any old porcelain sign I have ever owned. Its scary to think they can make these old signs this good. Once again, thank you for the heads up I will eat my mistake and not contact the seller.

Have a good night and thank you once again.

Rich

Thank You Rich

I/WE couldn't ask for anything more from you. You made this as right as anyone can. Hope they didn't cost you too much.

Thanks Doug Doneth

Rich it has happened to the best of us on one occasion or another. I am just glad you stepped up to the plate and ended the auction when it was pointed out to you.

It makes our hobby just that much better!
