Looking at these two signs Saturday. After searching on here, could not find the dimensions for these on real signs. Besides the "licensed by" is there any other codes to look for the validate these? Too many fakes out there.

"Licensed by" means it's a fake.

I can tell you the bottom sign is fake. The mobil lubrication looks correct. Check the corner there should be a marking there. May be under all that crud.

I thought the bottom one is fake just because it is so clean. Thanks!

What Dan said.

There are a lot of clean original signs out there as well as a lot of beat up fake stuff. You can not go by condition alone in deciding if it is real or not..
