As context, I received this s36" diameter sign as a birthday gift from my wife. It had been hanging in my friends' dad's shop for decades and when cleaning it out after he passed away, she arranged to get it from my friend for me. I'm a classic car guy but when it comes to petroliana I'm not a collector so forgive me for not having a value guide and research materials at hand. Repro or not, I'm happy to have it therefore.

What I have done is ask my friend where his dad would get such a sign and he said antique shops and swap meets - this in the 1980s mostly. I've done some general searching around the internet and it doesn't match any out there that I see. Could it just be someone's home art project - ?

I'll attach a photo, and list below some things that are apparant to me that seem odd or may just provide more information.

Some things that I notice are different - I'm sure there are plenty more to you experienced collectors:

Border is simply white, no black (or green)
Wings / "A" have no black outline
Font looks a little off here and there - the "G" in "Flying" looks a little small, and the "G" in "Gasoline" looks a different in terms of the width of the vertical piece and a little chop off at about the 7:00 ponit.

The little bottom vertical line in the "Y" in "Flying" looks off center.

The paint isn't highly uniform in application either - seems a little thicker here and there. It was also not clear coated in that a mile cleaner did remove a light bit of paint consistent with baked enamel finishes on automobiles prior to the advent of base/clear paint jobs.

The holes drilled are crudely done and not uniformly spaced. No grommet at the top one (largest, the middle and bottom ones are just sheetmetal screw holes by the looks of it.
The back is galvanized finish.

I appreciate very much anyone's opinion on it. Again I am happy to have it as her gift, just trying to figure out what it is...
- Scott

I got another small run of lubester knobs and have contacted those of you that I had on a waiting list from about a month ago when I ran out. If I have missed anyone that wanted some I apologize. If you didn't get a message from me please let me know and I will try to get you taken care of. I don't have too many left again as my guy was leaving for snowbird land until March and just made me enough to get those out I had orders for plus a few extras. Thanks to everyone for your patience and patronage, I will try to keep a few in stock as best I can in the future. Price is still $12 each plus $7.50 postage to the continental USA for up to six knobs. Paypal preferred. Thanks....Gary

Anyone know what purpose the sliding tube topper served? I purchased the parts diagram and it is called out on the diagram, but left out of the parts list. My topper pot metal was rotten and broken up in multiple pieces. With super glue and JB Weld Putty, I was able to piece it back together and it will fit on the sliding tube top.
