Gaspower--nice 42 inch sign from the 20's era! Regarding the 6 inch signs,i do not think they were used on truck doors as stated in Zirkles auction,i believe they were used on Salesman's car doors.If anyone knows different let me know.I have heard they were also made in a 10 inch size but have never seen one.

Well, thanks to everyone for the links, I finally got everything to work.
My first impression was, how does anyone get this many quality signs?
What did he do with the bad signs, or did he never buy any?
I have been around this hobby for over 20 years now, but I have never heard of Glen (probably becuase I never collected signs), but can someone clue me in on who he is and where he is from?
One more thing, I plan on going over to the auction on at least Friday, and maybe also Saturday. I also plan on going to Iowa Gas (have never missed on in 20 years), so, if any of you want me to pick up something you bought at the auction and bring it to Iowa Gas, just let me know. My cell phone number is 314-630-9074. You should be able to get me while I'm at the auction. I will be driving a car to Iowa, so I can't bring anything large.
Just bid on the item, pay for it with a credit card, tell them to give it to me, and I'll bring it, or them, to Iowa.

I have dealt with Glenn Z. in the past, he's a standup guy. I just emailed him about this thread on here and we talked about giving out his email, for anybody that might want a better desription, possibly another photo of an item?

Here's Glenn's email address, be patient for a reply...

Yes, Glenn is a first class individual. Very nice to deal with. Kinda sad that he's breaking up his collection but it's a chance for alot of people to add a great piece or two to their collections.

The six inch Shell 30's door sign went for $1100.00- not a bad price as i sold a 20's 6 inch for $2500.00 quite a number of years ago.

FYI - I was told that the 6 inch Shell sign was suspect because it had no shelving. The low sale price confirms that the crowd didn't believe it was real.

Some of the rare and even not so rare signs went extremely high ($26,000 for the Harbor, $3,000 for a Signal pump plate, etc). But for alert bidders there were some bargains, particularly later in the auction, on both days.

I thought that prices were very strong for the most part. As you would expect there were some bargains but in general not a whole lot fell through the cracks.

$26,000 plus 10% for the Harbor Petroleum Products sign, how about that!

I got a few nice Shell items I wanted, didn't bid on the 6" sign and got smoked on some others. Really would have liked to have that Shell Night Lubrication sign and gonna still be looking for a nice regular Shell pump plate.

I was suprised by the pricing relating to condition. This is one of the first times (outside of regional sales) that I have seen low-medium condition items consistently demand healthy prices.

Also, restored signs seemed to bring good money. Not sure I agree with that trend but obviously doesn't bother some collectors.


Collect small Oklahoma Oil Co.'s 1920's-1940's. Barnsdall, Cushing, Eason, Marland, etc.

I was amazed by the restored signs. To see them fetch top dollar was a real eye opener.

The harbor sign went for well over 200% of what I thought it would bring. Its signs like that they make you want to go hunting in the wild to ad to your collection.

I saw quite a few sign sell a fair to low, I think souperhigh got some great bargain on some 30in rounds. There was a red crown or two that I thought went for half the value.

Re: "I saw quite a few sign sell a fair to low, I think souperhigh got some great bargain on some 30in rounds. There was a red crown or two that I thought went for half the value."

Well, sometimes internet bidders think they got a real "bargain" until the sign gets delivered. Watch out when the "onsite" crowd drops out of bidding and a sign runs up further with the internet bidders. Many times the single photo doesn't tell the whole story on the condition.
