I'm posting this now because a reproduction pump plate has just been posted on ebay. The seller has not listed it as original but says he believes it is from the 50's. I emailed the seller to inform them it is a reproduction.
Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Flying-A-Ena...1QQcmdZViewItem
I have shown a picture below of a real one in the first picture and a fake in the second.

Real one has rounded corners and thin white trim

Fake has square corners and solid red border. I bought a couple from Vic's for an outside pump. $25 EACH. Ted

Seller emailed me this back.
Thanks for the info! We purchased this at an estate sale they said it was old. May be I should do my homework a little better. Thanks again
Happy Holidays!
They just didn't know.
Doc good catch on the 11 3/4' phony. This thread needs more input. Good job.Ted

Don the original is 10 x 10 but rounded corners. This is what took me awhile to figure out. I don't see details as much as some guys.Ted

Looks like the guy has already revised the listing on the square sign....no mention of it being from the 50's any more.

The repro sign shows the letters with flat tops. [O,G,S]. The original show those letters with rounded tops and bottoms.
