This month we are going to do signs of all types from Tydol, Veedol and Flying A. Please try to list the age if known, size, and type of material. (porcelain, painted metal, tin, paper and cloth.) Let's have fun with this and get as many people to post as possible. Remember this will go on the rest of the month. If you need help in posting pictures send them to me, Scott (quartcans) or good old Hubba and those guys can help post also. Okay Don, time to start your engines and psot those signs. Ted

This is a porcelain measuring 9 3/4 inches. I would imagine used in the 50's until?

This is a 10 inch porcelain sign probably used as a pump plate in 50's to ??? It came from a collection in Texas. I don't know that much about the flying A company so my estimation of the era may be wrong. I picked up the signs just because I liked how they looked.

Large Flying "A" Winged Porcelain. This has always been one of my favorites.


This is a tin sign that I found back on the East Coast years ago. Interesting Flying "A" blasting off. Hydrogen treatment? never heard of it.

Very cool Tydol porcelain sign. Don't ya just love the colors?

My favorite Neon sign. I got this one at Iowa Gas in 2002. It's porcelain.

Great job fellas..Let's get behind Ted and really support this thread as well as the others. We know it takes time to take pictures and post them or email them them to someone to post but this is all about learning and seeing what items can to be found.

This flange sign is painted tin.

Got on my soapbox and forgot about this cardboard Veedol/Tydol poster commerating the 1933 Indy 500 win in my office. Don't know much about this sign other than my wife bought it at Iowa Gas in 1995 for $10.

Here's a very nice sign. It's the "Associated" sign with the "more miles to the gallon" Pitcher.

Here's a different flying "A" square sign.

Here's a squre Flying "A" that has the desireable green/red colors.

A nice Tydol "Ethyl" sign. Same vintage but East Coast.
