...I'm going to post once more about all of this, as I feel for the most part 'treasure ray' is doing a bang-up job of introducing himself to the Oldgas community...
....read the questions asked and 'answered' for the Champion sign:
Nov 11, 2009
Q: Any date or manufacturer name on this sign?
A: Hi I dont see any name or date on it..
Nov 14, 2009
Q: what is printed in small lettering in the right hand corner on each side of the sign?
A: Hi sorry I dont know as I already have it packed up.
...now, anyone with eyes
can see a small code in the right hand corner of this sign, in the photos...it's hard to make out, but there's no doubt that it's there on both sides of the sign...and anyone with a brain
can see that the 'answers' posted are less than helpful, at best...
After disputing his 70s Clear Neon tubing wasnt original to that Rexall Sign and his laughable BS description,he has been on a mission ever since. How could a 1940s Rexall Sign with all that rust needing sheet metal replaced still have the Original Glass Neon?
...here's 'treasure ray's' reply after I told him his sign was a fake, and that I would inform the buyer as such if he wouldn't:Yeah a B-I-G "Oil can and Map" buyer like you couldnt afford it anyway!! I am waiting to inform the buyer of your Rexall sign you just sold also.. re: Clear neon being all original?? Clear Neon is new, moron!! They didnt use clear tubing neon in the 40s or put it on Rexall Signs.
...any neon people want to chime in here?...listen, genius
- neon glows bright red or reddish orange when lit, that's why the glass is clear...the first
neon sign used clear glass!!!
...your little 'neon sign' routine only started after
I commented on how convenient it was for your sign to be packed up - so no further information would be available - and that your sign was a fake...my only 'mission' here is to keep a misinformed buyer from getting ripped-off...if you don't tell them, and no one else does, he/she might think the sign is real and old for years, until they try and sell it and learn otherwise...LONG after your 'money-back' offer has expired...
