Identifying Sinclair signs and what they are worth - Thu Jun 08 2017 09:55 PM

I find myself in possession of 5 of these identical signs. Roughly 12 x 2 inches. I can't find any info on them and what they are worth. I took them to a pawn shop and they couldn't find anything either. They were sitting in my grandfather's shed probably since the 70's. I don't really know for sure. I would appreciate it if anyone had any info on them and info on what they are worth. Thanks.

Little Sinclair strip sign - Tue Aug 15 2017 06:09 AM

Do you know anything about how much the little strip sign is worth? I have a few of them in excellent condition and can't find any information.

I'm unsure about the value of this specific sign but I have seen other signs the same size from Standard Oil Company.

Private Message me to discuss.

From the 1977 Henderson/Benjamin Sinclair collectors guide.
Signs should be 2 x 12
Hard to believe these little strip signs were worth $2-300 as long ago as 1977!!
