If I can jump in on this thread, i'd like to know what the sign plus the pole would be worth. There is an old station near my house that has the Texaco sign painted over. I've never approached the owner if they'd like to sell, but if someone wanted to give me enough encouragement, I'd do it. I don't want it, as I have nowhere to put it, but I'd help anyone out who might.

Hi Mapper,

I don't know what that is,but it is not a Texaco banjo.I would suggest that you first measure it's diameter.6'?Secondly,if they will let you,go up there with a razor scraper and see if that thing is porcelain.If it is,I would go get it whatever it is if the price is anywhere near reasonable.That looks interesting,but then I like the uncommon!!

I love mysterys but he must know its a Texaco pole??
As for pricing---again, condition is everything. If you have to sandblast and repaint the pole, you have to consider the cost! Will they take it down for you or do you have to hire it done? Is it straight and free of unsightly welds? Theres a lot of things to consider before pricing something even as simple as a pole!

If the pole didn't need work and it was laying on the ground where I could load it----$500 would be fair. If there are issues that will cost, then deduct that amount. Exceptional pieces are always worth the premium that you might have to pay and poor condition items can end up very costly sometimes! Hope that helps! LOL

That sure looks like a home made post or made by a sign company for who knows what!
My 2 cents

wow....a guy is gone for a few hours, and returns to a lot of comments! I was told by a guy who ran a heating business prior to the sign being painted over that it was a Texaco station. Since then, the building has been sold, and the heating business that was advertised on the sign has been painted over. The same guy told me that he had to pay the city $100 a year to keep a posted sign like that up. Since it's not being used anymore, I can't imagine the business that bought the site wants the sign anymore. I've never taken a sign like that down before, so i'd need some help to figure things out. I'll stop by this weekend and ask around. I'll keep you posted.

First of all, no one has answered POLDSIGNKIDS original request for information, he started this thread, someone more knowledgeable than me should give him an idea of the value.

Second, MAPPER, just seek out the closest sign company to drop this sign if you buy it, have them drop it to the ground or on to your trailer, well worth the cost.

Third, I'm heading to Minneapolis to try and find this sign. Just kidding, you have really found a keeper.

Thanks Jack , all I wanted to know is what everyone is paying for a texaco banjo pole... I know someone is trying to sell them for $1500...lol. I just bought 1 weeks ago for $300. And I want to see what others are paying. Because I've been offered 1 for $500. And I'm just checking the board for prices...
