One of the most obvious things is the red hoof on the front leg is all the way to the edge of the sign. Nowhere else on the sign that I can tell does the red touch the edge. Also, as I mentioned before, the T-53 marking is disproportionate to the size of the sign.

what a shame.....the worst part of it all....is that legitimate dealers with authentic pieces are losing out on the money that people are willing to spend in the hobby. sounds like they are filtering in at shows wear dealers might think that an expert would not call them out on their little scheme

Right now there is 1 pegasus on ebay marked T-53. There are 10 pegusas' that are not marked as far as I could tell from the auctions. Plus 2 original pegasus, one being sold by Ron Bettin. So in a few years there will be atleast 10 more "frauds" out there confusing the average collector.

I sent him a message but it probably won't do any good. frown

Wondering why you don't advertise this sign as a reproduction? Maybe you didn't know? ALL of these T53 signs are reproductions! mad

Heres his answer:These signs are not reproductions. They are heavy porcelain and were made in Canada.

Sent him another Email:They may be heavy porcelain and I don't care where they were made but they are REPRODUCTION signs! You need to get a copy of the Mobil gas collectors guide!
Not sure why I feel the need to inform these crooks but it really bothers me that they are taking advantagre of people, whether they are aware of it or not!
