Today at 02:08 PM Greetings and I.D. help by `30Fordor

Hey All! Finally purchased a visible pump after many years of poking around with the idea. It is a Rapidayton, but I don't know the model. It looks sort of like a 450, but not quite right. Also, who might sell parts for this pump? Btw, my first pump ever, and looking forward to the forum community. Having trouble posting image however.... Will try for 4th time.

Today at 01:04 PM Havoline Oil can. Early 1900's Dark gear compound by longbow

I Have listed this on ebay.

Item #142538330556

Early Havoline Dark Gear Compound. Indian Refining Company. New York City. Possibly Unopened. I cant tell for sure

Here is a rare one for your collection. I have searched and searched and can not find another photo of this can or any history of one being sold or for sale. I did find a 1919 newspaper clip (pictured) that mentions it as being used for transmission oil.

Is a semi-fluid lubricant or "dope" especially
prepared for use in transmission cases, ft
combines the advantages of oil and grease
without the disadvantages of either, and is preferable
in gear cases and rear axle housings
where leakage would occur with a fluid oil. It
is adhesive to the highest degree and is especially
recommended for the lubrication of worm

Today at 12:41 PM Union 76 bulk plant -- family history by Young's Union

My dad was given the original bulletin board out of my grandfathers bulk plant about 20 years ago. It was recently passed on to me. This board has lots of history and some of the certificates have many of the old ones underneath. The paperwork is so fragile that I framed it and covered it with plex. The consignee sign was also hung in the office. The NO SMOKING signs are also from the bulk plant fence and I was able to get them a few years ago. These are items in ones collection that are priceless.

Today at 12:39 AM Service Station Hats How to Tell if Real Fake by michaelmill


Recently acquired 13 service station hats from a collection. The collection was a good one with 95 percent real items in it, and just a few re-pops I noticed snuck in. Trying to best figure out how to authenticate and see which have their original patches.

Is it really about eyeballing it or are there any obvious things to help authenticate. Heres what I have come up with so far and some seem to be original. (i think) others patches added later....

- First off all hats are certainly old, that is obvious by the wear of the hats, old companies makers marks with US locations, old fabric smell, and so on.

- some have a really tight stitch, maybe machine done?
then a few have a real loose spaced stitch. (looks hand done maybe even by an amateur but I am no seamstress)

-some have brighter patches some dull and more worn

- i noticed even a few have a glued on patch which seems to be a dead give away of a later added on patch, but then another had a glue that seemed very discolored and looked to be old glue

Were all of these hats made blank by private hat companies that were sent out to have patches put on separately? Or was the hat coming right out of the factory with the patch sewn on it?

I have everything from Texaco, to Sinclair, to DX in this mix

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Mike

Yesterday at 04:08 PM Gilmore sign for possible trade by aajf

I may trade my Gilmore Battery Cables sign for a couple of pumps. I am looking for at least one Rapid Dayton 600, plus other visibles, clock faces or Wayne 60's, Tokheim 36 style pumps. The sign is in nice shape. I never cleaned it so there is dust and light dirt that will clean up nicely. Feel free to PM me. Thanks, Andrew
