Does any one know if this is a real pump plate ? All the collectors here in New Mexico that I have talked too over the years say that they have never seen a pump plate like this on a pump. Just decals,this has been ongoing discussion over the years in this part of the country. And only about 3 or 4 that I have seen on ebay have come up. And their always in very good condition and always out of Texas. Appreciate your insight. 320640429379

I was watching it also. No one can tell me if it was real. Grommets looked correct but the size and back had me wondering.

I know there are three Malco globes;the Thunderbird,the Zia and the Ethyl.I also know there is a Malco Supreme sign and I think there is also a Malco Supreme decal.Only one pump plate?I don't know,it just seems somewhat strange.

That's a different one. Same seller they must have came up with another one. Curious where they came up with two of these, I just don't think Malco ever made these.

your right...they are different.
there has always been much debate over if MALCO ever had pump plates..I called a friend today that deals in pump plates for many years.
Told me he has always stayed away from them.

They don't give me that warm fuzzy feeling.

I think your right. There have been a lot of pumps found here in N.M. with Malco decals but nobody has ever seen a pump plate on one. I have found the porcelain malco big signs, and even have the Malco credit card accepted sign. Just not enough evidence to ever prove that Malco came out with a pump plate. Always wanted one but to scary.

Hi Paddy,

There are actually three big MALCO identifation signs that know of.They made a 5' diameter round one that looks like the pump plate under discussion.Possibly the oldest.They also made a rectangular one,about 3'X5',with a smaller thunderbird on top above large MALCO letters.There is a pic of it in use on page 66 of the hardback book Route 66 Remembered.I like pics of signs in use when I can find them.Then,the most recent,they made a large,8',oval with just MALCO on it.Very plain.

Hope that helps.

The pump plate is now at $510 with 17 hours to go. I emailed the seller and he said he guarantees it 100% to be old and original.

It's now beyond what I would pay for it so, I'll just sit back and watch............

We have found Malco Globes, license plate toppers Two different credit card signs that Malco made. I have found the 5 foot round thunder bird porcelain sign other collectors have found the rectangle porcelain signs and also the very rare Malco Supreme big sign and also miscellaneous other stuff like maps and even a credit card and lots of other collector out here have found a lot of pumps branded Malco. But none of them had a porcelain pump plate on them, You would think that one would have turned up by now not even a beat up one. It just seems kind of strange that none of the pickers out here have ever come across one. Somethings not right with those things. And every time one comes up it always in very good condition. Maybe It's just me.
