Is it fake? It has the black outline all the way under the green T .It is dated 3-30 .A lot of people jumped on a Texaco 15" that was almost like this one not long ago .Why is no one jumping on this one .Is anyone sure that it's fake ? Is anyone sure that it's real . Is anyone besides me willing to admit that they just don't know .

It's an original. It's WAY over priced (you can pick up a near mint one for around $300).

The back of the sign tells the whole story.

But, on the other 15" sign that was just like it a member said that the black outline is not supposed to go under the green T . I think someone said the date should not be on it .Did we get someone elses sign kicked off unfairly ? When I asked about it Ddkinsey sent me a message and said it was a pump sign that Texaco never made .I am a little confused here .How is one sign authentic when it has the exact thing ( black outline under the green T )that a member cited as the reason the other one was fake? Either the black outline can be under the green T ,or it can't .Either this sign is fake ,or the person who posted about the black outline going under the green T did not know what they were talking about .

Did you see the "Rare" Invader tacker sign for $2K Buy It Now? The sign is riddled with cracked, chipped and peeling paint. There's more crack on that sign than the streets of Detroit!

Texaco didn't make their own signs (they did make their own cans however). They had regional sign makers make their signs, and you will find small difference like that in their signs (where the black outline doesn't follow all the way around the T).

In 1930 Texaco started to date their signs (when they switch their design to REG T.M. from REG U.S. PAT OFF). 3-30 signs were fired on porcelain, and after that some had ink stamps fired on the front of the signs too.

Texacopumpdog,

Take a look at this thread from last year. We discussed this signs in depth (I posted pictures of a few of my signs to show differences).

Lets get this correct.....I never emailed you about any Texaco sign. The only Texaco sign I have made a comment on was the 12" petroleum products that everyone on oldgas told you was never used and is a fantasy. I don't know enough about these small round Texaco's to make any judgment.
thank God they aren't reproducing the 6 footers yet.
Seems to me enough people have told you the facts on these.

Ddkinsey , I thought you were talking about the 15" sign .You sent me two messages .One said something like "it was a sign that was never used". I had been asking about the 15" sign so I assumed thats what you were talking about the 15" sign . The other was something about fake mugs .

My rule is texaco 15inchers should not be dated and should have REG. U.S. PAT. OFF. Not REG. T.M. Dates come on smaller ones. Look in some of the books about porcelain signs. I'll say it again, I'm not an expert but I have done the research and have found this to be true for many years. 15 inch texacos have been reproduced recently, I would bet that the dated ones are done that way to make the unaware buyer think they are old.

This has been an ongoing discussion for a while. I have had a few offers on it but people are still very unsure if it is real or fake. I totally believe it to be real. If it was questionable I would have pulled the listing a while ago.

I have it priced high because of the lowball offers I recieve, what I accept is no where near my asking price.
