Anyone see these sell at any auctions?

Did Chevron Aviation ever have the V wings flowing towards the "R"? The signs I see all have the wings towards the "E".

Also, is there a specific time period that "Reg U.S. Pat Off" was used (to help date petroliana across the board or does that mark mainly apply to signs?

Someone correct me, but wasn't there something a couple years ago about fantasy or repop winsocks?

I'm not saying that's what this is, but the reverse V is just too weird to believe a big company like Chevron would create a variation for a winsock?

Isnt that the way the wind would blow? Maybe the artist thought it wouldnt look right headed into the wind. Just a thought

I've got a 1940 fuel truck branded Chevron and the tanks have Chevron on both sides with the wings facing the rear of the truck.
I have been told like JimT said it has to do with the wind direction.
