Hello fellow Old Gassers, To be perfectly honest with you when I started collecting gas and oil 25 years ago, "smalls" did not interest me in the least. I started out as a heavy oil quart can collector, then wanted one pump and a few signs..well, things change over the years and i have 15 pumps and a bunch of signs now..some call it an obsession, I say its just my Hobby..LOL. When I got the Hat badge/pin bug, i started looking at Oil Company "smalls in a new light. I thought they would make a nice display with the badges and started collecting shadow box frames from the thrift store and creating Company displays. I will be posting more photos as I finish them but here are a few for you to view. i hope you find them as interesting as they were as fun for me to create.


Mobil "Smalls"


Mobil "smalls"


Associated "Smalls"


Texaco pin display


Mobil pin display

I am almost finished with a Richfield display..will probably post next week and soon to come Pan Am/Amoco and Esso displays smile

Great job on the "Shadow Box " frames ! Hey, small stuff can add to a room just as well as a bunch of oil cans . A lot depends upon how much room one can devote to the hobby . Ed Shaver

Love the way you have displayed your items.

Would you share tips on how you managed to attach items into a case like that? The pins and patches are easy enought, but how did you attach the pens, truck, lighter etc without potential damage. Paper items also. Any fishing line or such is not visible in the photos.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Chuck..I use clear silicone..just a dab, if I wanted to disassemble them..the silicone will gently peel off the items without damage. smile

Hubba, Your display looks fantastic, my Friend!

AL, has been picking up different Tydol and Flying A key fobs and rings...

I think he will be quite interested in how you have done this Mobil display...

In the one with the razor for example, how are you securing the pieces in place?

...no doubt the displays are visually interesting - but you might want to use UV glass...once the displays are disassembled, there's liable to be some weird fading where pieces overlapped other pieces...

With the paper items do you use small tacks or a bit of scotch tape

Rip was using Riker Mounts - the only experience I have had is using them for botanical or insect specimens. Behind is a cushiony material that presses against the glass when empty. The specimen is gently pressed against the glass by the cottony material without smushing. The box is kept tightly closed by a set of straight pins the line up matching holes. Whether the fiberfill is acid free and the glass UV protecting--you would have to contact the manufacturer to get that information.

I use a very tiny dab of silicone. May not be the best way but its what I use. if your gentle you can remove/move items and gently rub the silicone off. i absolutely see the concern of the safety of the items , but I don't plan to disassemble these displays anytime soon. I get a thrill daily at looking at them smile

Forgot about this thread. Here is a Skelly box I put together a while back. The case was my daughters trophy and medal display case that my dad made for her when she was ten for her gymnastics awards. I found it cleaning out the attic and boxed up her stuff and repurposed it for mine......
