Any photos so we can know what we're looking for?? Pegasus describes a HUGE variety of gas & oil collectibles and even when you know what you're looking for, the condition of the item is extremely important! We all hate thieves mad but without information, we're pretty well worthless to you! Also, there should be some contact info in your report because I'm sure that most of us don't know where Toole county is??? confused

Hi Kevin, I saw the info in an AP story in Antique Trader newspaper. Shelby is in NW Montana. Article said sign is 9' X 5'. No contact info was given.

Makes no difference where it was taken from, its where it went thats important! Like I said, if you can get more information, we can be on the watch but without it, we really don't know what we're looking for???

I was going to put up a cookie cutter on my sign fence but backed off for that exact reason. I worry enough with what's out there now !! I think it's really sad that some great displays simply are not available for public viewing because of the risk of theft and/or vandalism. It stopped me.

I wish them well.

These sort of things turn up if the word get around enough to the circle of collectors. And they know what to look for.

Does anyone have a picture of the sign? We need to see the pattern of chips and blemishes to identify the sign if it shows up on the market. Otherwise, it's like reporting that a blue Taurus was stolen without providing the VIN or license plate number.

Shelby is about 90 miles north of Great Falls and about 30 miles south of the Canadian border on I-15. It is on the crossroads of I-15 and Highway 2. I heard about this a couple of weeks ago when I was in Great Falls. I will contact the newspaper to see if they idid a story and see if we can get a picture or contact information.

I just spoke with the owners. They are going to try to get me a picture of it and I will post it. They did mention that it had some bolt holes drilled into it at the top (not original) that should make it distinctive. The sign was seen in the back of a truck being driven out of town. They think it may still be in Montana.
They have notified the police of the town where it might be and have been told they don't have enough proabable cause for a search warrant. They had a description of the truck as well. Wil post a picrure when available.

Tell the owners to give you the details of the truck... that could help.


Looking for anything from Hoosier Pete, Platolene 500 and Red Bird.

Check HORSE farms.. wink...seriously.
There is a horse boarder here that wanted one so he had one made and uses it as a sign at the street.
I am surprised it has not been stolen even though it is not authentic.
