The seller in question now has on their latest "original sign" auction, that they have 4 more "T-53" pegasus and a cookie cutter. I asked about them selling these "fake signs". Here is their response;

"In response to your question we appreciate your concerns. We have done as much research as we can, we have had more sign dealers that like these signs than not. I am not offering these signs for large money, these are great signs for anyone restoring gas stations or decorating. There are alot of people that can't afford the 2500.00 signs so they buy these. No one can tell me the age or origin of these signs and we would like to know how you know.
Sincerely,
Junkman59"

To me, getting between $350 and $450 for signs they know are fake. And to keep selling them based on they are "doing a service for those who can't afford $2500.00 signs", IMO makes them crooks. But, then again the law can't change "stupid", if a person wants to buy a "fake sign" for hundreds of dollars then go for it.

Thats the guy that I had all the conversations with about 2 years ago. He actually got stiffed on several of these and when I explained it all to him, he just changed the description! If you read it, he doesn't say anywhere that its an old sign or an antique. He just lets the buyers imagination take hold and do the work. He should be about out of them by now?
