the letter font on my picture posted is different from the original but it does have the italic ALL.

- see the C, R and F which is diff from the original.
- the white spot on the bike is also different.
- and it does not have the double trade mark.

looks like is confirmed fake...good thing I walked away from the deal...

Looks like someone squeezed the image to fit it the square. I learned this from gulfiends posts!! It's what makes this site so great.

I bought this exact sign on eBay..I must confess..the italic "ALL" fooled me..but I didn't pay the price a real one would fetch, but probably paid a lot more than I should have. Oh well..I do like the sign and it looks heavy duty with shelving etc. I do have a few repop porcelain signs in my collection of rare signs that I couldn't afford otherwise..so this is no different I guess..I will enjoy it anyway. smile

Great thread-I liked the sign; the bike and gargoyle on one sign-great stuff. But there were way too many of them out there to be real, so I stayed away. Turns out I was right without knowing all the reasons. Thanks all for the education.
