I can’t seem to find an original to compare it to . The fakes I do see are flat and of a lighter blue writing we’re it says Fleetwing . Porcelain all looks good and raised as it should be. I need to no if it’s fantasy / fake / repop / or as I see it an original ! Just worries me thanks Chris

I don't know why so many people think the shelving on signs is a factor in determining authenticity.

Just some friendly advice to let you all know, porcelain can have thick shelving on real signs AND on fake ones.... and Porcelain can have little or no shelving on real signs AND on fake ones.

Unless you are comparing it to the actual (same) manufacturer of a particular (same) sign when it was manufactured, shelving is not a tell tale sign.

Just a free lesson,
Steve
