Mobiloil Gargoyle Price Sign - Thu Nov 06 2003 03:00 PM

This was bought off eBay several years ago as an "original" but I now believe it to be a repro. These signs are now showing up in the vendor catalogues. It is 13 3/4 x 17 3/4 with a dark green reverse. Four small holes in each corner. (I can't upload the image as it is over the limit, so maybe Jim can help me out).

Gary Send me the picture and I will shrink it with my photo editing program. Thanks for the red crown grommet. The dates you have on front is from a real one and the other dates I posted are on all the repros I have ever seen. Ted

This is the price board sign that Gary sent me to post for him. I have seen these on ebay as originals.

Yep Rex, the letters are embossed. I'm glad it's an original. Although not a repo, to my relief, the readers can now know that the repops do not have embossed lettering. Thanks to all for their help.
