Less than Truth-full seller, signs are NOT from the 70's.

I was about to post the question about one of those Phillips 66 'pillow" signs. One is at a local online consignment store and it has damage and fade. It looks pretty much real...heavy metal and good quality. But I felt it was fishy....now I know....it is! It's getting a lot of action. I'll just watch it go.....

Subject seller is making a LOT of money on all his *****. Many thousands over the last couple months.

Jim,
Mailbox is full.

When looking at vintage cast iron, is there some tell tail sign that it's repop?

I emptied some pms Thanks. There are tells- paint- casting details- seems- proportions. Its like anything else, when your interested in something and focus on it and you examine the items at shows ,talk to dealers, buy items for your collection ect. Some crooks stuff is getting hard to distinguish but his stuff is obvious. I mean a crude model T with a patent date of 1890 whatever with big block letters "Full Service" That pretty much gives it away.

Old iron has a different look, feel, and sound(when struck by a metal object). My old boss could tell you in a minute if it was old or not. Adding multiple layers of paint and rusting fool many though.Knowing the exact dimensions is a big help. Most "replicators" do not go to the trouble of having patterns made, but simply use the original castings and make them loose in the mold. The new castings will be somewhat smaller due to shrinkage and less detailed( hide with multiple layers of paint). Dave

Interesting! Thank guys. Sounds like a talent that takes some time and experience. Like most talents in the collecting hobby.

Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled program. POS Signs. Already in progress.
