This sign looks exactly like the one shown from Iowa Gas. Note the lack of detail on the Minuteman's head. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160176370100

Repo or repro and non-orignals or fakes... what a topic.

as greed and the all mighty dollar get involved, its unfortunately only going to get much worse.

you can now hopefully understand why most things we purchase in this hobby, we do as such. Then if happens to be an authentic, original piece... we win! Otherwise got exactly what was paid for.

The thing I notice about most of these repops is the score marks on the backside. It's obvious they scored them up with a razor then soaked in salt or something to get the old rusted look.

Do these repops come out of India?

What is this Monticello crew people talk about? I'm curious.

Whoops, just saw that card at the start of post. Now I understand.
