I know where the Service part of the sign is, but the lady doesn't have the Cities part.

Man o Man--Is there a pole sign like that? In always thought that the Cities Service pole signs were just shaped like the clover! I would LOVE to have a pole sign like that! I'd pay some pretty good cash, if anyone can get one for me or point me in the right direction! Heres a pic of a roadside painted sign and I thought they were the only ones shaped like that!

POLESIGNKID I would probably give the $2900 if the sign was really nice! Do you have any pictures of it?

I bought a Couple Imperial Refineries Signs along with poles a few years back, the signs were Porcelain and they were 2 single sided signs with a Metal skelaton between them with a Porcelain can around the edges and was approximately 6" thick when it was assembled. This sign could have possibly been like that insted of a Double sided sign with a ring like most station signs were. I will see if I can find a Picture of one of the Imperial Refineries signs I bought.

NOW THAT YOU MENTION THAT TYPE OF SIGN STRUCTURE, I DO REMEMBER GETTING A COMPLETE D/S PORC D-X SIGN SOME YEARS AGO THAT WAS ASSEMBLED THE SAME WAY. A 6" WIDE PORC STRIP IN 4PCS SURROUNDING THE DIAMOND SHAPED SIGN WITH AN IRON SKELETON INSIDE.
