Crap like this is why people get out of this hobby.

Hopefully the seller didn't know it was a reproduction. They do know it now. Lets "sitback" and see if they are honest?

Nope - not honest.

Posted the same c$%p about it being a 'Canadian' version of the sign. Hogwash!

Later . . .

I wonder how many more of these pieces of sh*t, he has? I see where he says a few. Does he mean 3,30 or somewhere in between? Maybe more????

This is the same guy from missouri and he has sold several of these. If you ever see one of these close up they look like they have been cut with a plasma cutter. They are very rough looking. I saw one earlier in the year that had the t -53 and it was in missouri and they just dont look right. This guy i hope gets what is coming to him

So you're telling me not to hold my breath waiting for a reply, Shawn? I wanted to give the benefit of doubt to the guy. From what you're saying, I get the impression this guy is something I wipe off the bottom of my 'gardening boots", when the neighbor's dog leaves a "landmine" in my yard? (I want everyone to know I tried really hard to "clean up" my metaphor)

Wow, look at his feedback and all the happy customers...sad. Too bad someone can't stop this guy. Maybe he will make the mistake and show up at one of the midwest shows this summer with this crap. Then Old Gas members can inform him these are repops. If you know what I mean.

I e-mailed this guy and asked him about these when he sold his third or fourth sign in a two week period. He told me that a bunch of these were found in southern Missouri, not Canada as this sale clearly states.

I got a call yesterday from a sign collector that was about to purchase one at the White Cloud Kansas swap meet and I informed him that it was a repop. He told the seller and the seller told him he was selling it as an original and wouldn't change his mind. Someone will end up spending the $600 asking price a feel they walked away with a steal thinking it's original. What a shame!
