The sign makers Rarely Ever made 1 of anything. There are more Closet Collectors out there than current members here. Some have a few items & others have Massive Collections.

Cool Sign! It would have been very expensive to set up and stamp out only one sign, even back then.

Agreed. They did not set the the stamping for the embossed signs to make just one of them. I actually seen one of them a couple of years ago in a guys collection.


I am always looking for anything Texaco or Oklahoma oil and gas company's, also I am a newbie at seeking globes.

Nice sign,but he's extremely out of bounds on the asking price.
Another example of a seller standing in the way of a sale.
I've seen 2 in Illinois in separate collections,and know of a 3rd in Texas.

Oh I'm sure there were plenty made and I'm sure there are a few around somewhere. Please don't think that I was agreeing with the add from that perspective. And I'm sure his price is high too. But all that's for the buyer to figure out for himself. I only posted it for people to see. It's always nice to see something you haven't seen before or dont see very often. I just think he's got a great piece there in great condition.

I can think of a lot of other signs I would rather spend that kind of money on.
