What size is it? Is it painted steel? Doesn't look to be porcelain?

Right now looking at the photos, IMO, repop or fantasy.

I can't see any heavy shelving, really see none. The grommets should be split, instead of solid on the back.

I will be interested in the opinions of those that collect signs, much more than I do.

Here is the info I listed it with...
Here is an American Gasoline pump sign. From the 2 chips in the pics it looks porcelain. It has 4 grommets. The Blue outline of the letters is raised. Light dirt in the coating, with a wavey look to it. The back looks old too. I am NOT SURE of its age or originality, look and ask questions. It is 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 and weighs 1.4 pounds.

I just looked on eBay and since there are 6 of these for listed there now...I think it's safe to assume it's a newer piece...maybe 80's or 90's?

I agree, newer sign. Just does not have the old look, the raised outlines and the grommets makes me think its new.

IMO this is repo but if it was real it would be a killer sign.
