I contacted the seller and gave him this information. We will see what happens. No originals are known to exist and this was a fantasy piece. Ted

This sign was one of about 50 made by Flying A collector. It is a fantasy sign and not original. This was an early logo used in 20's and 30's. Food for thought. This is not an ORIGINAL. Thanks Ted

Ebay item # 230553572276

This was the reply
so either way there isnt many. good to know. thanks!!!

He never changed the auction just let it run and if you don't know you pay too much for a repop. They originally sold for about $100.


Ebay at it's best

Ted, it's not Ebay. It is some of the sellers on the site.

"Brick-front" Auctions have the same problems with dishonest sellers at times. No difference, what so ever.

Right but when you contact ebay they do nothing. I have tried. It is just as life watch out for the good deal on a Rolex man.Ted

Good point!

I do get frustrated at times with Ebay, when I report an item or seller and nothing is done (that I can see).

I also understand from Ebay's point of view, that reporting an item isn't proof that something is really wrong with that item.

It is a tightrope, that thankfully I don't have to walk.
