Sale today was hot in both prices and temperature. They started off with tables of small stuff and the first table went over $7000 with about 4 items!! What a way to start! They messed with small stuff until 11 am and then started the internet portion of the sale and started with the cars. From there it went into the Mobil collection and the major large signs and pumps.
I was only able to buy a glass visible cylinder for a Wayne and this embossed Mobil sign that I think everyone was scared of. Another Old Gasser and I looked it over close and you can see paper marks on the sign and it had this little diamond shape around the letter "R" in the right hand corner. It measures 17 3/4 long by 13 3/4 wide and the back side is gray colored.
Anyone have any opinions? I looked in the repop books and couldn't find it?

Yes Sir Kevin, I think you probably did all right on the sign if the competition was scared of it and didn't bid you up...it is the real mccoy from what I can see. 13 3/4 by 17 3/4 inches approx. I can't tell from your pic but the Gargoyle should be embossed, I can see all the other correct areas are embossed. The repros are missing some information and embossing if I remember correctly. Also the wrong size. That one is definately a bright white beauty, normally they are yellowed. Nice piece,
Darin

Attention Auctioneers, flea market vendors, yard salers.... Don't put a sticker on the front of a potentially very valuable sign! Why do they do that???? It's really great when the sticker has been on there for a very long time. By the way... Kevin K I L L ER sign!!!

That's a pet peeve of mine as well. It's even worse when they do it to paper items.

Yes, this sign matches the color exactly! The embossing matches as well! Feels good to get it right for a change!
Got rid of the sticker too!

We were hoping to get that Kant-Nock globe, but unfortunately we were outbid. Have a Kant-Nock sign that would've gone good with!

I was bidding on that globe as well but they blew by me pretty fast. It had been repainted and several edge chips on the base. Body was good though.
