And a bad fake at that. Look at the orange peel in the flash reflection. Buyer beware!!!!

What about the back of the sign where it says "Property of Chevrolet Motor Co " ?

Although this sign does look fake, orange peel in porcelain isnt a clue if it is old or not. in fact many signs of the 20's and 30's have a heavy uneven surface.also different manufactorers could account for different levels of finish. Yes, the property of logo isnt consistant with id. marks on many chevy signs. Rick- Lebaron Sign Service

Property of does look like a stencil & spry painted on. If it was done when it was made it would be in the porcelain on the back more than likely.
