This sellers stuff is all fantasy, new or repop. So I think this Green Royal is also fake.#111081969082 I don't have a real one to compare but the color looks off to me.
I also think both the red and green have been reproduced.

Based on Randy's pic and the black back, I would sure like to think the ebay one is real. What is there to say it's not. Am I missing something?

Everything looks ok to me on the ebay listing IMO. The reproductions I have seen all have white backs. Not a very expensive sign to try and fake. I would agree with you if a seller sells other fakes/reproductions I personally would stay clear.

Think what you will, BUT as others have said WALK AWAY from any seller that sells Fakes/UN-marked REPOP's.
THEY Don't care WHO THEY BURN.

LMAO!!
Whatever you say DB! Your the man!!
Experience I will gain. As for your issues, well.....
The only reason I posted in this thread at all is because I have interest in collecting these signs. I have a red CONOCO already and would like to get the others. So I was trying to gain some EXPERIENCE in them by moving the conversation forward.

So DB, is your great experience saying the sign is fake or not??

P.S. I would not buy from anyone who knowingly sells fakes as originals!! Just in case that is what you were calling me out on.

There are two signs shown. Other than a slight color variation (which could be attributed to the photography) what is evidence to indicate one is a reproduction?

The other listings this seller has are all fake. Not just this time. Every time this seller lists, it is all fake. This one is on the faker list.
I wouldn't take a chance with my money. The real ones are not hard to find. Make sure you buy from a trustworthy seller. Don't buy from sellers with private feedback, sells known fakes ect.

I understand what you are saying that the seller is selling all fakes so that one is a fake.
But, what if, a regular on here was selling that same sign? Now what makes it a fake? Based on the two pictures shown there is no tell tale sign that one is different from the other, except a slight color variation in the two photographs.
