So with some digging this base is the only one of its kind in existence i was able to find unless someone can show otherwise. Theres 3 photos of tide water bases that are all a bit diffrent on the internet. 2 went under a veetrol and one no sighn... all black or rusty none were this green color witch makes me think this is possibley a tydol or FlyingA sighn base since some had some green of the same color in the sighn and were early Tide Water products... I cannot find this base on all of google. Can anyone else? I think this may be the only one known of this mold to exist. Any info or thoughts or price ranges? Thanks. IF ANYONE HAS THIS GREEN BASE WITH THE ORIGIONAL SIGHN PLEASE SHOOT ME THE PIC, thanks.

...there's a LOT out there that isn't searchable on the internet...so, it's a bit premature to think this is the only one...

...also, 'early Tide Water products' were orange, black and white...Tydol was a Tide Water product dating to the 1910s, and Flying A was an Associated product, introduced in 1932...Associated products used a green like this...this tells me that your base is from some time after Tidewater and Associated became affiliated in 1936...possibly an old Tide Water base was painted green after the merger?

...you should read this:

Why do people who are brand new or otherwise state that the thing they found is the only one in existence?

I sometimes say that never seen one before but I guarantee there is more out there. Never made just one.
