I'm by no means an expert, but with the original mounting brackets.... I say original....

There are others on Oldgas, who are much more knowledgeable than I... I look forward to reading their replies....

Agree with the others that it's original, and in much better condition than most as well!

It's as fake as the day is long. You guys are missing one obvious detail that makes it very questionable.

Look at the clips on the back,they are positioned so the horse would hang level, I have never seen a pegasus hang level, they all point upwards so they look like they are taking off in flight.

look at this post for a reference to the brackets.
It has 6 brackets at a different angle. This one has 4?

http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=288590

i told her i thought it was fake as well. Not an expert but something doesn't add up on this one to me.

Hope it is real for the family. it is on ebay.

I haven't seen any Repops that have the mounting bracket on back.
MOBIL was a very Large company & had signs made by different sign companies, same way with Globes, Cans, Maps, etc. Signs used in Canada were most likely made in Canada, like wise in the States.
Where 1 company had 4 brackets a different company had 6 [& I'll bet the size has a lot to do w/ it].

From Front Hoof to Rear Hoof;
Wes, What was the size that you sold?
Alyssa, What is the size of yours?

DB, but doesnt the comment from porcelain-neon make sense? The sign would be level. If he is level we should just make it a running red horse and chop off the wings!!!
