Here are 3 Cities flange signs with the first one being an unbent flange that came from the AM sign company warehouse.
The flat sign is a single sign with different wording on each side.

Heres a nice example of a Cities Service curb sign with the changeable price numbers.
Also some examples of the connection to the "ACME" brand name with Acme batteries and Acme tires!
The 2 porcelain strip signs advertise the Cities Service name and are about 8 feet long.

Here are several examples of oil lease signs and signs related to the oil and gas pipelines operated by Cities Service.

I installed some light board framework above my door opener hardware in order to have a place to display the larger 5 foot tin signs that have a wooden framework. They are light enough that the framework supports them OK.
The other 3 are examples of product display signs that would have been found inside a typical Cities Service station.

These are my final 3 signs!
The first is a set of cast aluminum letters that would have been displayed on the exterior of a Cities Service station and the picture shows the focal point of my shop above my work bench.
The second picture is my first and only neon and I was lucky enough to find it on the way home from this last Peotone swap meet.
The last picture is of the earliest piece that I own, and is a 30 inch ultra rare curb sign with reflector marbles outlining the outer edge and center design! I have all the other parts, but I'm waiting to clean it up some until I can find time to put it all back together.
This is the first and only one I have ever seen and I worked for over a year to get this sign. The owner would not sell it and the only way it was obtained was to keep offering enough trade material until he was satisfied with the trade.
Difficult to do clear across the country, so I had to have a lot of help getting this one in my possession! Thank you to all that helped!

This concludes my meager contribution to this thread on Cities Service and now:
"BACK TO THE HUNT"

Wow Kevin! Beautiful collection!! Just incredible!! Seems never ending! Some of the globes are, well just awesome. But I think my favorite was the 48" on the original brkt/post.
Very Very nice to say the least.

Building is a 30 by 40 unattached garage that I mainly use as my shop. It was the main reason we bought this place when we moved!
She got a nice house, but I got an awesome little shop to have my hobby in!
