I wasn't going to post these at first. Hate to bore everyone with the same old stuff. Trust me...I'd like to see something different also. I know darn well Socony had other signs & other companies were around at the time so my gut is telling me there should be other signs in the ground. Other than the heavy rain & one p***** off deer it was a productive memorial day weekend. Yes...I got run off by a doe not once but twice between yesterday & today! She was grunting at me & rutting with her hooves(like a bull getting ready to charge) Either she has a fawn close by or maybe there's some good signage buried? The sign gods are laughing at me this afternoon.

I have a feeling someone was contracted to remove all these signs for a change over and this was the dumping spot. For this many signs to be in one place is odd. Keep up the good work. I bet there is a lot more down there.

Thanks 57tbirdkid! Larger & smaller there's gotta be other Socony signs in there. Curb signs,lubester paddles,service station shields,etc. Something other than Socony pump plates would be great. I've had close to thirty of them.

I got a bunch of broken Socony globe pieces set aside to try & put together somehow. There was other globes pieces but I can't figure out what they are. I would've dropped the signs & shovel before I let go of a intact globe.
This is all I could think of.
