I don't trust it due to his other items...Any thoughts?

When its at an undisclosed overseas location, its always an indicator of trouble. When they refer to porcelain as vitreous enamel, its always another indicator. Reminds me of the seller"COSASVIEJASMEX". He always made a big deal out of calling it vitreous enamel.
Even if its a completely legit sign, the potential problems greatly outweigh the rewards! Avoid it like a bad habit!!

We have an original and the lettering on this sign isn't even close to the original.

I'd stay away!!

I BELIEVE THE SUNOCO FONT SHOULD HAVE AN ARCH ACROSS THE TOP BUT FLAT ON THE BOTTOM. ISN'T THE GUYS EBAY NAME RIGHT ON THE SIGN?...OR IS THAT SOMETHING THEY ADDED INTO THE PICTURE.

LISTEN TO THE PROS....TURN AND WALK AWAY. wink

I really like his "Original" Texaco Sky Chief where the S and the f are cutoff.

Yes flee from these, do not walk.
Mark

I dont have the knowledge of the Sunoco but I'm not falling for more "name brand" signs in excellent shape. No original Indian signs to sell? HMMMMMM....

It is the same sign, the new seller(superflex_moonbeam) gave the original(?) seller (stencilwork) feedback on it on 12/28. Talk about a quick turn-around. LOL
