with such a plain background, "we" cannot tell how big it is.

the FORD logo looks a bit fat!

Yes you can tell all at the auction that it is fake till you are blue in the face, There will be some that won't believe you and still bid it up high, Just sit back and laugh. Ones like that deserve to get taken

here is an interesting forum with some guys talking about making repos & showing some originals

heres another thread on that forum that shows a correct Ford Pyramid & they also talk about repos

The sign below is in a great collection & they claim its an original.....it has the fat lettering & dark blue porcelain however i don't think its as dark as "alwayslooking" photo.........there area few different reproductions, most are not marked or dated & they vary in quality...
