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.
