I just got this email from ebay & it appears they are finally addressing the moumental problem of people selling repos as originals.........If you see anybody trying to sell a repo as an original post it here & i will report it.......

Dear road-relics

You are an active eBay member, with a history of positive interaction with your trading partners and Trust & Safety. We'd like to thank you for your interest in maintaining and improving the marketplace.

We have developed a new tool called Enhanced Member Reporting (EMR) that makes it easier for you to report listings that violate eBay policies. When you submit a report using this tool, your report will be given very high priority for review and will reduce previous delays you may have experienced.

We have enabled this tool on your account. Now, when you are logged in to eBay with the above ID, use the "Report this item" link at the bottom of any listing, and you will automatically be presented with the new reporting tool. We have found that the tool is very easy to use, but if you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please let us know by responding to this message

Based on your previous experience it appears that you have extensive knowledge in the area of antique signs.

Please reply to this email with any specific brands, types of items, or other categories that you consider yourself an expert in. This will ensure that your reports in those areas are given high priority as well.

Best regards,

eBay's Enhanced Member Reporting

-- Please note --
The Enhanced Member Reporting (EMR) tool is still in its test phase and access is limited. We ask that you not share access to the tool with others at this time. Abuse of this tool in a pattern of unfairly "targeting" items that are not in violation of eBay policies could result, at a minimum, in removal from the Enhanced Member Reporting program

A few weeks ago I got tired of all the compalining about repro's on EBAY. I put a listing on there saying I would direct the highest bidder to www.oldgas.com for a professional opinion on a sign you are thinking about bidding on. I mentioned a few well known brands. My listing was pulled and they listed the reasons why. Afterward they sent me a email asking if I understood why they pulled it, and asked me to take a survey. I laid into them for pulling my ad which was helping people while they let others keep ads on defrauding others by selling reproduced items as old.
I thought about putting another listing on there worded a little differant but remembered my wifes famous words. "PICK YOUR BATTLES"

Well, I hope everyone on here ( oldgas.com ) respects the power that was or is being given by Ebay on reporting reproduction items. Please keep in mind everyone that just because you haven't seen the sign or item before dosesn't mean it didn't exist.It has always seemed to me that some guys ( not all guys)on this website have been pretty quick to give their opinion on whether or not the item is original or reproduction.

"I don't think there is anyone that can know everything there is know about anything. " Don't get me wrong, I think this site is an excellent way of communication re- items authenticity,,, everyone is doing a great job on that,,, just be careful please..

Just my opinion guys,,, be careful what you wish for..

Don't worry Wes I will personnally make sure they are reproduction before i report them as such & usually its the same culprits that have been doing it for years....If you read their email, this is a test run & only a few are able to use this option......

i have had many of the real J-D signs & your right MM they are much bigger & i have also seen many of these small J-D signs & they are 100% repo......The other Atlantic & Socony signs he has listed look like repos & i am sure the socony is but not 100% sure about the Atlantic........ he does have a couple of very nice original signs including an Oliver, however he has the original signs priced way up there........
