Couple more;

The thing on the end is a Sudzadizer or something, marked Sinclair and fit into a soap bucket I assume



A sign for the shed, my moms grandpa used to sell De Laval equipment



A single lens I needed for the back side of a globe. This version has the italics letters on the top. Sort of hard to find

A small strip sign that was used in about 1927 on the back of delivery vehicles



Plus the neon clock in the above picture



And a Hull body with a single lens. There are two different lenses like this, one has a small center circle like this one and the other has a bigger center circle. This globe had two lenses, one of each size. I kept one and my brother got the other

Close up of this. Cudahy Refining company had the Opaline brand until they were bought out by Sinclair in about 1915 or so, then Sinclair started using the name;



Plus I was finally able to get a sign I was after for a while, close up of part of it



Complete sign plus a matching half gallon can. The can is not mine yet but I have first dibs on it when the cash flow stabilizes

Great buys everyone. I enjoyed visiting with many oldgas members at the show. Here are some of the items I came home with. The Red Seal is double sided tin litho dated 1912. The Hood is 2 signs back to back on an original base. Thanks to oldgas member chadrock for the Gilmore double sided canvas banner.

I seen this sign last year at a antique show and while I liked how early it was,I did not like condition,the guy who had it there tried to clean it and ruined some of the blue trying to get the rust stains off and I had to think about it and when I went back it was gone oh well, so it goes, then I run into a buddy and he bought it as he also liked how early it was. fast forward a year he calls me up thursday as he's going to a swap meet to set up and wonders if I want to look what he's bringing no brainer there, so he had this sign loaded I still couldn't really decide but decided at least its a early fence hanger.




So then last Friday night sittin drinkin a beer I look at this sign reading the makers mark and it hits me. same company that made the early deco lightbulb sign I have!! bolted right in and patina fits

My first craigslist wanted add for unrestored gas pumps. I put it on a month ago and forgot about it. I got a call last Saturday about two pumps that go delivered to a farm by a fuel oil delivery guy to the family farm in the early 60s. I got these two bennets regular and premium cities. Hope you like.

Thanks,

Always great to upgrade a rare North Star globe even if it is just a single lens. I bought this last month and a buddy of mine just brought it today from British Columbia, where it was found. My old globe had both lenses washed out along the bottom so I was happy to finally get a better one. Interesting that it says 'Trademark reg'd in Canada'. I haven't seen many Canadian globes with that. This is on a banded glass body held into place by a steel band with four threaded screws. The globe book got it wrong for some reason. I don't own a copy of the new digital version so I don't know if it has been corrected. I have had usually two or three of each of my North Star globes over the years but most of the Ethyl ones have just been singles for some reason. Definitely scarce in any condition. Cheers, Don.

Excellent "Buys" everyone!!!

I picked up a few Ebay items...

I noticed this image from 1961, on Ebay. I then was able to purchase one of the large Flying A Tire and Tube decals shown in the upper window... Now I need to buy a couple pieces of plexi to mount it in:





I also found an Associated Oil 5 gal bulk can:

I need to ask Jack Sim the difference between the Viso Boyle Dayton, and the Wayne-Boyle Dayton. The pump is missing it's I.D. Tag, and I'm not sure how to tell the difference. He has both pumps listed in the 2nd edition identification book. Anthony

Nice and shiny tops under the dust there Bob! Nice find!

Anthony: from what I know it's the amount of number sticks in the clynder. 3=B&D and 2=Wayne/B&D.
At least I think that is the quick way. I know because the B&D I had also did not have a tag.

And this is “The Walking Ched Burger” from a place called Zombie Burger in Des Moines. That’s two patties with cheese, bacon, carmelized and raw onions, mac and cheese, on a fried mac and cheese bun! One of my best buys in Iowa this year!

WHOOOO HOOOOOOO I saved them, for now at least, from the cutter and met a GREAT fellow oldgasser and to top it all off he treated my son and I to breakfast at the Red Horse Café in Ellensburg Wa! That place was a treat from the back outdoor porch that was surrounded by signs and pumps to the front where they had a giant gas pump and 3 or more restored pumps and soooo many beautiful signs. ,,, and let me say the waitress out shined them all RRRRRowRRRR! I think I was in sensory overload!
These last few weeks have been INCREDIBLE!





,,and there also was this gem! My first piece of SoCoNY! I can't find another like it, yet, and I don't understand all the raised metal half-circles on the one side????

It's just a 10-15 minute drive north of the hotel. We decided it will be a regular stop for us. Champlinman had a chicken breast with cheese, bacon and onion between two grilled cheese sandwiches!!! The place was awesome! Huge micro beer selection too.
