Opinion on what this is worth? 6ft round. I'm told from at least the 40's??

IS IT PORCELAIN AND DOUBLE OR SINGLE SIDED. CONDITION LOOKS TO BE ABOUT 7.5 AND CERTAINLY NOT A COMMON BRAND. PROBABLY REGIONAL OR PERHAPS MORE LIKE COUNTY. I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT THE COMPANY AND WHO THEY MIGHT BE RELATED TO IF AT ALL. LOOKS MORE 50'S TO ME. WHAT'S THE PRICE?

I have yet to see it in person. If it is not porcelean or double sided than I suppose that might change things. Price is sounding to be about right $320 ?!?

Sounds good to me, even if it's not porcelain. Looks like it would even clean up good. Something different and unique .

FROM THE GUIDE TO GASOLINE LOGOS BOOK (TOP, PAGE 33): MILEAGE WAS CONNECTED THRU CONOCO THRU THE WESTERN OIL & FUEL COMPANY, MINNEAPOLIS, MN. SIGN IS DESIGNATED AS BEING USED FROM 1950-1960 LIKE I THOUGHT. HUSKY WAS ANOTHER NAME USED WITHIN THE SAME COMPANY.
