I will try again. Also, I think if you click on the picture, it shows you a better picture and the watermark goes away. But thank you for letting me know the problem!

Click on photo takes you to the file. No watermark , but still fuzzy photo. I think it was just a bad photo , others in the file are ok.
Still a good looking sign , even if it's fuzzy.

The fuzzy part is that I took it with the light and background, I was sweating like a wet dog, so dirty I could barely hold my phone and trying to hurry before he changed his mind wondering why I was taking a picture. LOL

On one of many trips on the Montana hi-line I stopped at an old station and asked for old signs and oil cans. Owner said no, it’s all gone, but another fellow who happened to be in there at the time said “what do you pay for cans?”
Depends on condition and rarity I guess.
He said follow me. Went across the street to an abandoned station he owned. Inside he got me a ladder and I went up in a crawl space to see cases of empty cans that had been used and put back in their cases.
Hauled them all down, made a deal, rest is history. Mostly Clack Heccolene quarts and Texaco havolene qts.
If you have a minty Heccolene quart, odds are it was from this find.
A funny note to this story, the day before I had stopped at a bulk station about 50 miles away and the guy had a Heccolene quart that was full. I had never seen this can before and offered up to 250.00 for it (pile of money back then) but it couldn’t be bought.
Next day I find cases...

I can’t remember where this was in Idaho but I took a picture on the way by. Never had time to check it out.
Left it for Clifton I guess. Hahah

Those are some great finds Peter and Kim. I am in love the Oilzum signs Clifton found.
This was a sign take down I did in Coal City, IL. I think it was in early 1999. The dealership just changed hands, so was able to purchase all the old signs here. A lot of work, but you get to drive away with a big smile on your face the whole way home!

Peter, what a great haul of Coke signs. I had a similar grab a few years ago in Tennessee. Not quite that good, but pretty good. Funny thing is the sign shop had bottle caps in the upstair attic catching water from the leaky roof. LOL

Kim, you found great stuff!!! All I got in was the crumbs you left behind which I am grateful for. Those are cool Heccolene cans.

Eric, what great sign there. Some good ones!!! That olds is killer!!

Really enjoy this thread and telling a few old stories. There was a lot of dead ends in the middle of this highlights!!!! As we all know smile

Here is my Heccolene can. I bought it from a collector in my area in 2012. He had two of them. It is probably from your haul.

Wow , you don't see those kind of signs on buildings anymore , great find do you still have them ? . Clifton thanks for the compliment about the Coke stuff , I was hoping that I would find some real old signage when I was digging thru it but it wasn't there.

Here's a load of pumps from south east Utah .I think Loading stuff like this by myself might have something to do with me having a hard time striating my back when I sit for a while and then try to get up . Anyone else have that problem ?

I was able to buy one of the cases from you and Ace at the Early Ford Swap Meet in the late 90's.
