Lot of $$$ for a fantasy clock. Beer / cash register clock.

a total fantasy clock.....take a $75 clock body, $25 in vinyl & then you got a $450 clock ??......would'nt be so bad if the ebay seller had represented it that way, but no, the same old story, it came from my fathers collection....

Like I said, "Whatever, it was about as neat as they come!". Perhaps his dad made this, and this is how he found it???

WOW, in my honest opinion I was just joking with you. Take a chil pill..... Opinions are like (well you know what). You have one, and I have one. That's what makes the world spin.

By looking at the rather generic Mobil artwork with no dealer info listed, I would think someone did redo this one (as eveyone does with plain Pam clocks.)

But what gave it away as a redo??

for me it was never seeing one in the past 20 years that i have been collecting neon & other types of advertsing clocks......I know i surely have not seen everything out there however you get a feel after awhile.......i would never say 100% this is fantasy,but once you get it in your hands you can tell.....it could be silk screened, but i would be willing to bet its vinyl & they would not be using this in the 40's,50's & 60's.........not only does the color look wrong in the blue, the border of the shield does not look right & the thickness of the lines are different ....the bottom line looks thinner than the rest of the lines.........Buyer Beware
