small haul but a few good leads this week. The Big can is clearly Sinclair, too bad it is so faded

Here is a dream find for a Wadhams collector! These two signs were found above a ceiling during a remodel job on a Northern Wisconsin 100 year old bulk oil-gas station building. The owners were cleaning junk out of the building during demolition and found these signs tacked together face to face, and at first thought it was old crate sides and luckily investigated futher. Took a while...but I got them bought!

These were some of the first signs put out for the phasing out of Wadhams signage after the Vacuum oil company (Socony Vacuum) acquisition of Wadhams in 1930. They are painted tin and black crushed glass finish in mint condition after nearly 75 or 80 years of very dry storage.

Bought this old kerosene pump a couple weeks ago. Looks to be a Bennett pedestal kerosene pump model 1000 made from 1927 to 1960, as per Jacks new book, page 51. Even came with a polished brass Sinclair lock and key
