Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Is this what an original should look like with the holes for mounting the price sins and the impressed sign back? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=020&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=300071412027&rd=1&rd=1

...right-on, Bill - that one's the real deal...sent the seller an e-mail to see what was the best he could do on it (since he got no bids & I thought it was a l-i-t-t-l-e bit on the high side, not by much), haven't heard back yet...I hope I do...it's just a little better than the one I have...

...Correct Measure made these...they actually made later signs that had the patent date and number, a decimal point and holes for another digit...those are just a little bigger...I'm looking for a No-Nox Ethyl in that style...
