The first two pictures are of a can that was on eBay a few years ago. I took it at the time as a salesman's sample? It brought good money I thought, I didn't get it. Never saw another one like it for sale.
The can I posted a picture of before. The sign below it was also on eBay a few years ago. I wish I would have bid more on it. Also never saw another one.

Couple more pictures to keep the thread alive.

The High Compression sign showed up a few months ago in Texas if I recall. Never saw it in person but it looks right to me. It was later shown in PCM magazine. Experimental design? There is also a matching globe out there if I recall.

The three one piece globes are from Scott B's web site. The smaller size ones are not very common.

The Rest room curb sign is coming up for auction soon. I got the picture from eBay. I saw the sign before, never saw them displayed this way before. Could be original?

These two are from Bob Drake. The Triple Check collection. The 6 foot round signs are the most common from what I have seen. The 4 foot rounds also show up sometimes. I never saw the third sign in person. I have seen several pictures of them from back in the day. Experimental signs used in 5 cities as a test design between the HC logo and the trapezoid Dino sign they changed to.

The porcelain panels are also different as they have the letters in the panels, instead of hanging a sign on the building.
(Nice display Bob)

I also have station panels that have "washing" and "lubrication" on them. They're all from the same Sinclair station. If anyone knows the era they were put into use I'd like to know.

I agree the 6' triple check is the more common of the three versions. I've upgraded the 6' since that picture was taken. (Thanks Wes and Mark).
As far as I know that's the only trapezoid triple check sign. I'd be interested in upgrading if a better one turns up.
Like Wes said, the triple check logo was experimental. It was used in a few markets from 1956 through '59. I've seen a picture of a Sinclair station with triple check signage in use as late as 1961.

There are two versions of triple check globes as well. They're even tougher to find than the triple check signs.

Couple things that showed up at the Missouri show this past weekend. The decal was on a salesman's sample kit.
The pricer curb sign is one I never saw before. Power-X and HC, would be from the 1950s I would think. It also came with a box of red numbers to show the price per gallon.

A few more 24 inchers. The HC Gasoline matches the one globe they sold a couple auctions back.

Couple more things I picked up this week. The cone top Opaline can is a 1/2 liter all aluminum can. The two cans center and left in the group of three are two liters, the one on the right is a two gallon. The Sinclair 100 year globe was made for the company to help advertise Sinclairs 100th birthday which was 1 May 2016.
