ON PAGE 59 IN THE TEXACO COLLECTOR'S GUIDE IT MENTIONS A WHITE OUTLINED "T" LIKE THE PICS ARE IN THE FIRST POST. DARRYL'S SIGN HAS A BLACK OUTLINED "T". WERE THEY BOTH AVAILABLE IN THE 11 X 21" SIZE? THE HOLES LOOK TO BE PRETTY MUCH IN THE SAME PLACE ON BOTH.

WOULD LIKE TO SEE GOOD QUALITY EXAMPLES OF BOTH SIDE BY SIDE SO I KNOW WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT THEM.

KNOWLEDGE IS GOOD!

Mine also is a white out line T which makes sense for that year of 1952 and is 21'1-2 by 11' still think is a repop.

What I know to day I would stay clear of those Texaco oil rack signs, unless they were the porcelain ones, only seen one or two of those sense I been collecting. and they were in pretty bad shape.

I did not buy the sign, just saw it on craigslist and thought it might be a good topic.

Quantity is definitely not an indicator. Several years ago I bought out a bulk dealer and had 89 NOS porcelain Mobil pump shields in the boxes from 1948 and 1949, as well as 10 NOS license toppers, etc. I had someone contact me an accuse me of selling repops because I had so many shields and I was selling one a week.
Does anyone know whatever happened to “Black T” Doug. http://billstexaco.com/default.aspx
I would think if anyone would know a repop Texaco sign from the real thing, he would.

Check out item # 270498024985 on ebay. Puretex is selling 7 which are original. This guy is one of the biggest Texaco collectors out there. This one happens to have a white outlined T and the others have a black outlined T. A bunch of different dates. There must be a ton of these signs out there. I have one at my office. I'll have to look at it tomorrow. I bet this guy knows the answer to real or fake.
