Lot of fake signs from same seller on ebay with statements like not sure of age, seems to be old. Example ebay #130672035203. Also a Green streak Shell sign and others. They all have faked damage to them.

Most sellers from India are selling reproduction signs with carefully worded and misleading descriptions.

The majority of the fake porcelain signs that are sold on ebay are from india and on occasion from argentina ....I have seen people spend insane money on the small fake coke colonial ssp signs that come from over there...I have called ebay and tried to explain to them how they give crooks a marketplace to peddle their signs ...thus far ebay has done nada...maybe if enough people called ebay and ranted they would so something. I had heard there were "experts" that were accredited by ebay that could stop fraudulent auctions...not sure if that was/is true...

Makes you wonder why india repoppers would pluck these 2 regional indiana signs out of the masses.

Looks to me like maybe you found the "coach" or idea man.

Monticello Indiana is not far from Lafayette. Known group of repoppers from this area. Probably cheaper to contract an Indian maker. I think Jim is probably correct.

bigger problem is honest people buy them and then honest people not knowing any better sell them to the US market and Canada... really hard to stop this stuff from happening..education, education, education... if our going to be in the signs market you need to be educated big time..

Famous quote from one of the well know experts in the sign collecting field: "Tell me, did I buy yet another repop sign?"

Used the repop quote many times. Sometimes I did, sometimes I didn't. I'm not not an expert that's for sure. I'm on the learning curve trying not to get burned. Gotten a little farther through the curve with the help of the repop post that's for sure.

Just a FYI. 1 seller Jeff something..from Texas on the ebay has about a dozen diff names selling fake door pushes, hood ornaments and small signs. Private auctions.

Easy to spot him as he always has fake fire king mugs along with them. Heres a couple names he has funwithyumyum, lantysjet ,jusstuff,cooldishes, alildumdum and texasrevival. Wife collects fire king mugs and read about him on a website.
