Pretty much every one you find on ebay is a fake.

Shell NEVER made a small (12"+/-) YELLOW Porcelain Pump Plate.

Look at the 4th picture in the Dr. Shell topic in showcase to see what authentic signs look like.

That Golden color pump plate is fake. That style was used as a decal on pumps of that era I believe. The red and yellow is the real deal, four grommets and a black backing.
