Today at 12:35 AM Need help with a 48" HC Sincalair sign by Speedracer

I am looking to buy this 48" Sinclair sign from a guy who says he has had it for 35-40 years. I have never seen one with two colors bleeding into each other. If you look closely at where the red and the black porcelain meet at the top of the H, the dash and the C, you will see some overlap in the black and red (it looks like a shadow). It is about 1/4 inch wide at the top of the letters.

I actually own a version of this sign and the color lines are crisp. I was wondering if this should be a concern or not. If any of you own an HC Sinclair sign can you please see if any of them have this "shadow" where the colors meet.

I am slightly concerned because their is not as big of a 'lip' where the colors meet, when you rub your fingers across the sign and the REG US PAT OFF at the bottom is different than most I've seen. Do you think it is just from a different manufacturer or different era? Have they faked / fantasied this sign in 48"? Do you think this sign is legitimate?

Thank you all for any help.

Passed this piece of Americana on 127 this year in Tennessee. Still had the old pumps out front. Any idea of the age of the pumps and what type of station this may have been?

Apparently the owner passed away and his son closed it up and it has remained so ever since. The roof has collapsed but contents remain. Way cool.

Yesterday at 01:37 PM Pure Oil Sign Authenticity by tkelly

Attached are two photos (front and back) of a Pure Oil sign that I recently purchased on eBay.

The description on eBay included the following:

Vintage Pure Premium Porcelain Sign 1948 Gas Pump Sign Be sure with Pure Antique

Used: An item that has been used previously. See the seller’s listing for full details and description of any imperfections.

Type of Advertising: Sign

Original/Reproduction: Original

Date of Creation: 1948

Country/Region of Manufacture: United States

Pure Premium Gas Pump Sign .

"Be sure with Pure"

Porcelain, made in 1948.

The Pure Oil Company U.S.A.

Measures approximately 10" x 12"

Great condition.

After receiving the sign I would include the following additional description:

Actual size: 10.0" x 11.95"

Pump plate is "lightweight" porcelain and not the normal "heavier" porcelain that I would have expected in a pump plate. The plate is somewhat flexible and not stiff like the normal pump plate - it could easily mold to a slightly curved pump surface.

The back is not the normal white porcelain but almost feels like there is some sort of rubberized coating (black).

What are your thoughts on this piece? Is it a reproduction, phony, authentic, real, or??? Any thoughts will be appreciated.

Please feel free to call or email me if you need additional information to evaluate the sign.

Thank you for your assistance, I appreciate your time.
