The repro porcelain jar rack sign that Stencilwork makes would be hard to tell from an original UNLESS you have an original to compare to....then it is easy to spot the fake if side by side....I have pictures of both here for future reference as I'm sure there will be more coming in the future....the lettering and color are off quite a bit...the S in oils seems to be a problem with the repop as it intersects with the diagonal line...last but not least the original is ink marked "The W. F. Vilas Co. Ltd."
in bottom right corner.

Very good info. This should also be in the Unmarked Reproduction and Fantasy Petro Photo Album. Maybe one of the moderators can place it there as well? Cheers, Don.

thats true.... but he must have had an original picture to start with i would think....time put into quality just isnt there, or perhaps close is good enough to fool most without exerting too much effort....mm

Clearly the best way to sale reproduction signs is to list them for sale from India. Those eBay sellers in India are like Elliott Ness in The Untouchables!

IMO you are doing the right thing MM. We need to get this information into the hands and minds of the potential buyers. Informed people are wise buyers. Wise, informed buyers is what is going to hurt these forgers.

They could make all the signs they want overseas. That won't make them money. They make money when the local crooks buy them and then turn around and sell them locally to unsuspecting buyers. We need to own the problem and lay the blame where it belongs. It's the local crooks that are the greater problem and the root of this threat. I would imagine the local crooks are the ones providing them with details of what signs to reproduce.

If you look at the words 'MOTOR OILS' on the first one labeled as a repop, you will notice that ALL the letters are stretched and skinny, not just a problem with the 'S'.

Sorry for not getting back here asap but was on a road trip, 3200 miles in 9 days of driving, visiting and a little picken, so didnt get to the computer....but then i really didn't expect to need a rebuttal on this thread....You are right Wes, all red indian signs are not marked (dont believe i said they all were) just so happened the one i had was marked so i showed a picture of it(i appologize if i misled anyone)....it is nice to see that all the rack signs you show are exactly the same in color and lettering....not one looks like Stencilworks picture....I do believe with all that background and info you have Wes you should be able to spot an India repop in a second...its the others that are not as learned as you that i was trying to show the difference.....thats all.

Don't get too discouraged, not all of what is posted on here is 100% for sure, most of it is, but not all of it.

I think everyone needs to be discouraged especially by what I am about to point out and bring to light.

Reputations are at stake, because once again money seems to be more important then integrity.

I've spent a lot of time analyzing all the above pictures in this post. Comparing the known stencilworks fake posted by the MinuteMan and all the pictures posted by Wes Hague of known originals.

The glaring flaws in stencilworks signs are as noted below.

1) There is less white in the braids in the fake sign.

2) The "R" is real sloppy in the word "MOTOR" at the bottom of the fake.

3) Small white speck below the eye and at the nose is absent on the fake.

4) The distance between the bottom of the braid to the top of the "R" in the word "MOTOR". This variance in the spacing is what effects the placement of the "S" at the diagonal meeting point between the red and black background colors.

5) There is more black and a lack of detail in the area where the upper and lower lips meet on the fake.

There are more differences but these are the most obvious and no need for more proof; to me it is clear at this point. That with these notable flaws in the fakes that I can readily spot a fake.

You may also note that when Wes was posting pictures of all the original signs he has owned, he left out this sign (the one pictured below). Why????

Also, I was turned off by the tone of Wes's posts; it made me question why he was defending fake signs or at least mudding the waters.

Anyways, this isn't an attack, but rather just the facts being laid out. I for one, am disgusted!!!

Below, I have posted a picture of a fake. This fake sign is posted on Wes Hague's website as being sold as NOS for $5200.00 by Wes Hague. By the way, another NOS sign void of grommets.

http://www.ridgewoodgasolenecollectibles.com/

NOS = New Old Stock and should never = Non Original Sign!!!

You be the judge, and form your own opinion.

Tell us what you think of this oil rack,,, what is your expert opinion on it,,

Comparing the known stencilworks fake posted by the MinuteMan and all the pictures posted by Wes Hague of known originals.

Dave on the pictures I posted before you call them known originals,, how do you know that, only I know whether or not they are originals, they are only really known by me.. maybe they are and maybe they aren't ?

While we are still on known originals, what about this RI Aviation sign,,, is it correct ( I mean original or reproduction ) ?

Dave this whole thing with signs, globes, is all muddy,, whether you want to believe it or not,, like I have said many times before, Nobody ( not even you ) has seen everything there is,, oil companies bought globes, signs from different manufactures over the years, colours changed, designs changed. Look at oil cans for example, a friend of mine in Alberta has 44 Different White Rose oil cans alone..one has the wording this way , one has something else different.. My father, brother and myself worked as private contractors for all the major Oil Companies from the late 1950's to the late 1980's, we restored and rebuilt thousands of gas pumps, the paint alone was bought locally, red was red, just RED, sometimes it was the same as the last time and sometimes if they were out of that red we bought another one, Shell yellow, same thing, or Supertest... Globe manufacturers were the same, ask any real knowledgeable globe collector,,, ( I mean knowledgeable ),,, not some collector with a few dozen either... There is more to know about signs and globes in this hobby than any of us will ever know, real serious collectors will tell you that,,I mean the guys that are so called experts,,, that doesn't include you. smile

ONE LAST THING FROM ME,, I WILL GLADLY REFUND 100% OF THE PURCHASE PRICE, INCLUDING POSTAGE OR SHIPPING TO ANYONE THAT BUYS ANYTHING FROM ME THAT ISN'T EXACTLY AS WHAT I DESCRIBED IT TO BE. Is that clear enough ? or Is that too muddy for you.. ?

On another post a few months ago people were comparing two Sinclair curb signs. I stated then that just because there are differences that does not prove one is real and one is fake. Differences should be used as possible indicators to determine if a sign is right or not but just because something is different does not prove it is fake. There are many oil cans with minor changes, as there are with signs pumps and globes. Not all signs were made at the same time by the same company and with the amount of hand work that went into making some things there will be differences. Plus the mounting holes and other things can be off. Differences should be looked at as possible indicators of a fake. Experience and others knowledge can help determine what is right or not. Then again do not believe all of the opinions or statements of fact on this or any other site are 100%. Good luck with the hunt

Mr Maxwell

This is a little different kim pyett posted a picture of a red indian sign that was made in india and sold on ebay here on this thread then wes hague puts a sign on his website for 5200.oo that looks exactly like the sign kim just posted as fake. This all makes me sick. Kim lets hear what you think of the sign wes sold for 5200.oo ? Kim will not reply to this and say what he thinks because he does hot want to mess up future dealings with wes????

Pretty clear to me.

As always and once again; Really has no idea what he is talking about but has a great need to post and disrupt the discussion at hand.

Really you need to learn to read, comprehend what is being stated and then intelligently articulate your point. Wrong and not fully thought out or formulated thoughts and opinions are a waste of everyone's time.

Dave....what did you just say other than put me down? Do you think the sign Wes has is fake or real? ..."Pretty clear to me".......with no position to follow those 4 words is pretty vague for someone who uses the word articulate????

dang, fairly new to this hobby, started with one sinclair oil can (brought back memories of playin'around in my great uncle's station when i was very young). now I have around a thousand different cans, have restored three gas pumps,two lubsters, and one sinclair oil cabinet. (not to mention all sorts of garage equipment). I have come to rely on this great website to keep me from messing up too bad. thankfully most all the bigger signs i have have come from old gas members or been recomended by them. thanks for the info. on signs ,but I still dont trust myself to spend over a couple hundred bucks on a sign unless I get advise from my more experinced friends(mostly members on here).
thanks again for all the info- even when it gets a little confusing. Garry

...I agree...the way Ron has posted the photos side-by-side, makes it easy to see that the signs are identical...if one's fake, so is the other...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Looks like a child made the border on that sign with crayons very sloppy

...the one offered by the counterfeiter in India, 'stencilwork', eBay #251273258879...note the area circled in green:



...now, let's look at the two pictures offered by Wes, of the sign listed as sold on his website for $5200:




...if you look closely, you'll note on ALL of the other porcelain oil stand signs posted by Wes, that particular feather 'breaks' BELOW the diagonal line...but not on stencilworks' sign OR on the one Wes sold for $5200...
