This is crazy. I am a new Texaco Collector and I could spot this sign is a fake instantly. I really wonder who is buying these signs and I hope a person spending that much on a sign is gonna do some homework!!

I know what you mean by homework. But really all three signs never existed, so how do you do homework. Now there was a seller that said I need to research it. There is "NO" research involved. It doesn't exist. How in God's name do you research something that never existed !!!

Yup That is true....The way it is written in the auction makes it sound like it was a real sign Texaco Produced.

I was thinking that there was some value in seeing first-hand the thought process of someone like Mikemas. The window of opportunity for that has closed.

This is why I do not buy non-neon porcelain signs, just too much to know and too many chances to not get it right.

What happened to all the posts and comments made by Mike Mas and others on this topic? Did Oldgas take them all off or something?

I removed a bunch of posts from this topic. The Unmarked Reproduction forum is about information and pictures concerning troublesome reproduction and fantasy items.

The interaction with Mikemas turned into a nasty and pointless rehash of the membership's condemnation of unmarked repros and a vendor's perceived justifications. We have been there and done that before with no real progress toward something constructive.

Let's call out troublesome unmarked repros on this forum, but leave the unresolvable conflict out. We can share info and warnings without name-calling and personal attacks. Yes, I'm uncomfortable asking for more civil posts about people who may deserve no respect, but we can and should share info without lowering ourselves to their level.
