This looks like a Argentina Repop to me.

You're right, it is.

This seller has sold numerous "rusty back" signs in the past.

Stay away.

The sign went for over $426.00

The seller didn't like me asking if her "new client" she got the sign from, was from Mexico or Argentina?

Seller has sold many different newly made signs, mostly pump signs, for big money in the past. They are obviously all coming from one source, probably another country.

I asked this same seller the same question twice and got two different answers about the originality on her greyhound die cut bus signs....she can't even keep her stories straight....she has listed several since and won't answer any more questions....she knows she is deceiving people....this is a dishonest seller.
Scroll down for her responses-


Dear advertologist,

I had three I think I told you this owners dad revamped the buses, he removed the one sign and replaced it with these. how many buses do you thik was on the road?

Dear advertologist,

the first one I got from one person, this one came form a different person. This is a shop I sell for others. the first sign the guy told me was from the 1950's, this person saw that one sell adn said he had one too, so he brought it. that is about all I know about them, other than they are in very nice condition. I have NEVER had any of these before, and I have not seen any in this area, so that is why I believe the guys when they say they are form the 50's thanks

This is what I got back from her today on this sign

"and another thing, this sign is totally porcelain, there is NO rust on the back, any idiot knows porcelain doesn't rust."

Photo 3 sure looks like a rusty sign to me, must be my eyesight?, LOL
