So here is another one...ebay #380662776907...Is it "real"?...note the paper stuck to sign...could it be NOS?
OK, I just want to get right to the point here on the topic of this Shell Kerosene Flange Sign. It may be a real shock to many of you that the seller of eBay auction #380662776907 is a member here on old gas. The seller recently wrote an very well written open letter to the member's of old gas telling us how is would never sale a questionable sign. The seller of the Shell sign in question on eBay seller "Petrowacker". Petrowacker is from Elmwood Park, NJ. WOW, is that not the same city that Redhotrelics lives in? Wow, look at some of the photos from both sellers. Is that his twin brother? They must live on the same street. Check out Redhotrelics auction #281126532946 for the 1920's V3 Cola sign. Then take a look at Petrowackers auction #380658651971 for the Bloomfield Ave Sign. Same guy in the photo, and same yellow house in the background. The white house next to the yellow house in both auctions have the same green cone bush next to the house. I also noticed that Redhotrecics posted positive feedback as a buyer from one of the biggest repop sign makers in India "Stencilworks" on May 23, 2013. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!
