Writing is sloppy. The word all should be italicized. There is what I think to be a trader mark stamp missing from the right side of the sign. The funny thing is this one is the same size as original and No rust on the back. Still looks like a poorly made sign compared to the original.

she normally gets 5-600 for those fakes - I have seen her sell at least 5 signs like this! used to write and tell her in the beginning but she don't give a damn.

I feel sorry for the folks living in Indiana because when I see something from a seller from Indiana I just stay away because I am never sure whom the repro sellers are. John

Here's one just like it at the June 25th Matthews auction. The word "ALL" should be Italec lettering. Correct me if I am wrong.

U are correct, and also "regd trade mark" below "IL" in Mobiloil.
There is a post in known reproductions showing both the real deal and the fake, that I posted some years ago.

I guess this one slipped past Dan. He will state if it is a repop or not.

the words font is different from those on ebays and the D is quite done quite crudely as well.

Heres a picture of an original (Large British collection)
It has the italic "ALL" and two "reg'd trade mark" (below both the Gargoyle and Mobiloil) and it also differs in the area of the handlebar.
Originals seem to be rectangular and repros square.
Compare original to the one on eBay mentioned in earlier post above.
