Does the same guy have shell bottles and powerlube flange sign, I swear they both look exactly the same as the ones at a local flea market in my home in Ohio that was set up across from me and bought a few signs from me a few weeks ago. Look the same

Yes, Their whole booth has a fake aged patina look. I have seen them set up at the Turkey Run in Daytona, Hershey Car Show in Pa. etc.

This guy and his brother set-up at small and large meets all over this region. They have been at it for severl years and have fake everything (signs, bottles, baseball cards, movie posters, etc.) They have several spaces in different locations at the large meets like Hershey. I believe them to be the originators of the fake Shell & Hudson oil bottles. There hometown is in western Ohio.


Always looking for:
Early Oil and Auto Cans, Kenyon Tire Signs or Displays, Stutz Motor Car Company Items.

I was thinking that as well but I do not know for sure. I have seen them with the Hudson bottles as well.
