It's real, for sure, without a doubt.There were many variations over the years with this particular sign ,some batches were super flimsy "no back bone" & others were heavy gauge steel & "real thick"! Red background logo ,white back ground logo,& esso extra "continuously improved" pump plates i have found these differences on!That particular seller ran into a lot of 12 near Houston TX ,i have done business with him in the past & also bought the two red logo pump plates that he had out of the lot !BE SURE TO LET HIM KNOW THAT SIGNS DAMAGE EASILY IN TRANSIT! LOL.....ACTUALLY ITS NOT FUNNY, BUT ONE OF THE PUMP PLATES I BOUGHT, HE ENDED UP LETTING ME HAVE BECAUSE IT LOOKED LIKE A "TACO SUPREME" WHEN IT SHOWED UP IN THE MAIL...."PACKAGED HORRIBLY" I'M SURE IT WILL SHOW UP IN A CRATE AFTER OUR EXPERIENCE,BUT THE SELLER HANDLED IT PROFESSIONALLY,AND I LEFT POSITIVE FEEDBACK REFLECTING JUST THAT!This sign came from him. good luck & i hope that helps some!
