Seems not right and difficult to pick favorites out of the collection. This is my favorite group of signs.

Here's my favorites in my collection so far. Globe is from Dave, flange is from Ray Bentley. Not the rarest things but still some good things.

It is hard to choose a favorite item, but this Wayne 60-S has to be one of my best items!

Here are my favorites mainly because of the stories that are behind how I got them. I also really visually enjoy all three the most out of my collection.

I know its a reproduction, but this is my favorite for sure especially since it is a 13.5 inch one.

Everyone's ,items are great . I want too cheat as well and post two of my favorite crusty ones . Standard and Sinclair . The red crown I bought in a little town in the boot heel of Missouri a few years back. I was at a rice farmers place working on a old grain truck and had to go to a local parts store in the closest town( Qulin mo.)to get a few parts . While I was driving through a side street I spotted it beside a garage ,stopped and asked and the owner asked what would I give , opened my wallet in front of him ,and all I had was a 50.00 bill , he said that will do, both of us were happy. I asked him where he got it and it was in the loft of a old hand hued log cabin / garage building he pointed out to me , he said he was cleaning it out and discovered it. ... The other sign the Sinclair oils is my other favorite because it was buried for so many years..... You all I am sure remember my post of it this past spring and how it was from a little store and grocery called little vine and my grandmothers siblings went to school close to there . My grandmother has passed on but I talked to her youngest sister and she told me later this summer how the bus would stop at that station in the hot summer days and the bus driver would buy all the kids ice cream . This was is the mid 1940's she said , something I wanted to add...... Good decision on cotm Shawn .

I hijacked my screen name from my father whose HAM radio call sign was Greasyboy in the 60s through the 80s.He got that name from hauling pumps down the highway and splattering grease and fuel oil on the cars behind him.That is why I collect grease tins and this is my favorite.Great stuff everyone!

Maurice has helped so many of us with our collections. He truly is one of the good guys in the hobby
