I want to know if they made repros of this sign? I know that they make repros of the shell air sign.

Noah
Thanks!

I have seen the sign that is on ebay in person (was at Dixie gas)...Its marked AM Sign Co Lynchburg VA (dated) but I passed on it..There was another one there (not marked AM sign co) just like the am co sign...and I saw another one at Hillsville VA (it was with the guys from Ohio that always have the fake Shell Air signs (there's wasnt marked either)... Either way its a dbl sided tin sign w/ reflective type stripes (the paint/stripes look almost like sandpainted tape or something similar...I dont know if real...or not so real....Three signs that are all in good shape within a few hundred miles of each other...

So around 1500 for a very nice one. I saw one at a show that I go to and the guy was asking 600 OBO for a NOS one. He has been there many times, and I want to buy the sign if it didn't sell. I am going Saturday. Now I know how to tell if it is real. I hope it is real, and that I can buy it.

Noah
Thanks!!

Grabber, This is a picture of the sign that was at Hillsville Va. I did not pick it up and inspect it because they always have so much fake stuff around ,I thought why bother. It did have that reflective sand paint look which I have never seen on a Shell sign ? It has the grommets in the proper places and they looked old form the quick glance I took. We will see what others think ? I did not post this picture awhile ago, when I posted a picture of the Shell bottles under repop stuff because I don't know enough about it and did not really look close at it.

I saw one of those sand painted ones a few months back too. I looked , and looked and slowly set it back down. I wasnt sure one way or the other either but I went with my gut and moved on. The guy swore up and down it was right. At that time I was thinking it might of been some rare thing but now I'm seeing more of them popping up. Still not saying one way or the other but for me, I'll pass.
60W- yeah , right next to the "Rooms for Tourists" gem.

I just looked at the Shell sign listed on e-bay that RC Media has. It might be the same sign that was at Hillsville Va. that I pictured earlier and it might have been brought to Dixie Gas. RC Media was at Dixie and I would think that they would have gone to Hillseville.

I live in Lynchburg Va. and have seen some strange signs show up in the area. Allen Morrison sign Co. was here in town. They did enamel signs but I have owned several sand painted signs that they did as well. I have seen many unfinished signs or missing colors, rejects from the factory, taken home by employees. Some signs I have seen I have thought were prototypes or rejects form the clients.
The fact that this Shell sign showed up in this area adds some legitimacy to it in my mind, but the way that it is dated is very sloppy. So I don't know having glanced at it ?

The one I was looking at was at Michigan gas. I agree that the AM signature looks sloppy. The guy also had a couple of those questionable Shell air signs. Those are another semi mystery to me. He had one with some silver and black tar like material all over it. He was carrying around a copy of the picture with all the signs coming off that roof. The one that was clean he was asking like 1200.00 and the one with the tar on it he was asking something like 800.00. I thought to myself, for 400.00 why wouldnt he just take the tar off the dirty one too. Those air signs do look good, but definitely a little different than known originals...

Saw the shell sign at the Auburn IN swap. Also had a reflective Ford sign. I held them, looked them over and just couldn't help but feel something wasn't right. I passed.

I saw the shell sign at Auburn too. He had a dirty looking Johnson sign also. Most of his signs have the dirty-sooty finish on them. Is it illegal to take a picture of the seller and post it? Mine's been hanging in the post office for years. ;;;;;;;;Ron Lease

You can take a picture and post if the seller is in a public place with no "reasonable expectation of privacy".

Royals were in an enclosed compound, sharing a certain level of intimacy. They had a reasonable expectation of privacy. Photo's were taken with a high power lens.

So if it is reflective, stay away. The shell air that he had looked ok, but will look at it this weekend. Thanks for the posts!
