I am always amazed as to how high ($$$) signs have gone the last several years. Sometimes I think people have too much money and not enough sense.... but in my humble opinion, and I tend to be conservative....as has been mentioned, the rarity of these signs in this condition is the primary driver. I wouldn't be surprised to see the top one would be $800-$1,000...and the bottom one would be in the $500-$700 range. With "Texaco" where most of the damage is that really impacts it. I would be curious as to what others think. As I said, prices have really been goofy so, who knows...maybe a million??? LOL I too have those cans, but there is also another version of the aviation can.....still looking for it...

Adding to this thread from a Texaco airplane standpoint. I finally found a "New" Texaco airplane can that is shown above. Not a mint example for sure, but still very glad to add it to the collection. So, my question, when did the "New" version come out? The sign above with the "regular" can is dated 1935. Was this a newer formula? Any thoughts on dates? I looked at the can and there were not any dates. I also found an old oldgas thread from 2013, but no mention of dates. Thanks all.
