I don't have any rare sets worth posting here, but I can pair one with Stephen's original post. This Platinum is a nice one (and yes Stephen, it is out of Texas - the back of mine is ink stamped "Property of Texas Gas Corporation.")

Steve, I wonder what the dates on the Platinum plates would be (1960s?). Which leads me to ask the question, what was the difference between your square Super Premium Sign and my rectangular Premium Sign? Were they producing 3 grades of gas at the time of the sign usage or is your square Super Premium of a different time than my rectangular Premium sign?

i like the idea of having sets. Find one and then the hunt is on for the other. Having a specific item to find has always been my favorite part.

They were user for a short period - between 1941 to 1946, and only by the east coast parts of the company.
From 1946-1962, the porcelain shield signs were used by the different divisions.

The Mobilgas has a 1941 date and the special has a 1946 date and there is also a difference in appearance as the special Pegasus has a blue out line. This became also present at the Pegasus on the shields (except on the west coast shields).
As I understand they were - in parallell with the rectangular tin signs used by Wadhams - the first pump plates used by Mobil. Before this there had only been decals.. pls correct me if I am wrong.

Not really rare, just a little less common.

Guess they could be, I just always considered them very uncommon. Someone give some insight on them.

These 2 Dixie plates are the only 2 I've ever seen that weren't severely faded.
