All,
I bought this Ethyl sign as an impulse buy. Now that I look at the pics, I'm concerned I may have screwed up. Does this look legit? If not, please pm me to tell me how you know so I can learn.



Thanks,
BrianH

...exactly what about the sign gives you concern?

The spacing of the grommets from the edge and the 12-4-8 position. I hadn't seen another one with the holes there. I'd be really pleased if this is just paranoia.

Thanks Keith, that helps. Your "ethyl" logo is a bit cooler looking than mine IMO. Is yours an early version and mine a later one?

Yes mine is an older version. It is the EGC version and yours is the EC.

I don't have the sign "in hand" yet but I think it's an 8 inch.

That's a harder one to find with the ec and the 1948 date, sign is good...Frank

Whew - thanks guys. I was scared for a minute that I had my first "wall of shame" exhibit.

Thanks,

Brian ,Your sign was made from 1942 - 1964 the EGC sign was made from 1926 - 1942 I like yours because it has the date on it 3-12 45
You don't see that many with date on them . That's good one .
