Wow, the wife and I met some fabulous folks lately who invited us to their home to possibly purchase some antiques that their kids did not anything to do with. We got home a while ago and happy to report we got this Wayne Model 515 for $250.00. The 31" Pennzoil sign in frame for $75. We also got a large deco gear for $5, an early 1900's shopping cart for $20, a 25 lb walking tractor sprinkler for $10, and an early 1900's log roller that's 6 foot long for $15. We are tickled and believe it or not, they were happy to sell it to us at that price. They use to be antique dealers. Had to post this 'cause I'm elated right now!!! (have to figure out how to load pics in this section??)

Thanks! Any idea on the age of the Pennzoil sign? I'm thinking mid-fifties but have no clue actually!

I may be wrong but I believe that pennzoil is painted metal and not porcelain

Wow!! Like Randy said, that Pennzoil is a beauty!! And even more so at $75!! Heck I would think the frame alone should have cost you at least that. Great finds!!
Can you confirm like Royal asked, is it for sure porcelain?
Also, how is it attached to the frame? Is it in a groove and welded into the frame or is there a way to get it out? It may be dated along it's edge behind the frame.

Another thing of note on the sign. It does not have the "REG. U.S. Pat. Off" that most of these signs have. This could be a good clew to research relative to it's date, or a bigger concern, and I'm not saying anything, but it's authenticity.
I also just noticed something. I can't find a representation of the Pennzoil logo with that round "O". The only thing that comes close is Z7 can from the 80's.
I would sure like to see if there are any markings along the edge of this sign.

SC62: I just noticed that the "SAFE LUBRICATION" text is straight across and not curved or tangent to the frame like all others I've found on google. Also of note is that there is no highlighting on the letters that penetrate the bell. This is either completely fake or real scarce to rare. Interesting, I gotta check this out real close now!
