Oilzum porcelain sign - Sat Nov 08 2003 08:48 PM


Here you go guys, is it original? I was always told that Oilzum did not have a 12" pump plate. Let's hear from someone who knows that brand. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3636991352&category=40&tc=photo

Here is the reply I got from the seller:
"Are you sure as i have had this sign over twenty years and it has some small
marks on it also if this is so that is why i offer refunds because i
collect this stuff too there is noyhing worse than to be disapointed with
your purchase Thanks for your infoafter second looks i still belive it to
be original Mick"

According to his feedback he bought a Texaco he got stung on himself, so he knows the feeling. He may believe it to be original (which doesnt mean it is), hard to say. Wonder what the seller said when he bought it and what else he was selling..dodogas
