Looks fishy to me. All those colors on the back. And can't really see any shelving all of mine have good shelving.


Always looking for Mississippi company items, Billups, southland, ride with rose.

The top left corner of the G in gulf has white from the background but the G in good does not which makes me wonder if it is fake.

Mark,
I would say fake by looking at the back and when you zoom in on the word gasoline, it looks to sloppy. The back on mine is greenish gray. I can post a pic if you need it.

Man I hope its not a repop-at that size. Script looks wimpy. I dont know if I've seen a black backed one either.

Seems to match up to mine (purchased from Mark). Looks awful clean to me. I thought the font was wimpy too, but as I said, it matches.

...I pretty much had made my mind up, but wanted input before I posted...

...the border is irregular, and isn't nearly wide enough...ALL of the lettering is crude..and the black back is something I've never seen on a 10.5" TGGG plate...I think the $#@& in Mumbai is responsible - it sure looks like his handiwork...

Hard to tell if it's A fake or if someone had a bad day at work 65 years ago. Not worth the risk to me. Here's a picture of some with 3 different color backs brown,green and white. All 3 came out of a Gulf bulk plant.

Eddy-could you post a picture of the front and back of your? Thanks The one on ebay definitely does not look proper. It looks weak-lame.
