driveway gas price sign question... - Thu Dec 07 2017 03:00 AM

i just picked up a real nice texaco driveway sign which is NOS.
i'm on the hunt for the correct numbers and i think i found them, but my question is what type of "hardware" was used to mount the numbers? i can't find anything online with any detail.

thank you in advance,
tred

What driveway sign?
What numbers?
Hardware?

This is not a Texaco sign, but here is a generic price sign showing the hardware that holds the numbers. They pull up and snap down to change the numbers.

The Texaco Signs & Miscellaneous Standards Book states "No. 10x1/2" long R.H. Aluminum Mach. screws, washers and wing nuts shall be furnished by supplier for mounting numerals on sign."
