Texaco Sign Question - Wed May 15 2019 12:33 AM

Hello
I need an opinion(s) on the sign in the attached photos.
I was told the original signs have 6 holes for mounting like this one does. In the lower right is a date 10-6-33.

Is this original? Looks old

Thanks in advance for your help. hope these pics upload

Mike

Sadly, probably by someone who also bought a fake.

Notice the hole location of Randy's. The fake is a dead give away

good point Randy. I haven't seen that one, but I really don't watch ebay anymore. Too much India.
