No offense intended Cheese!

I like the sign, I believe it's original and I'm sure you found it in Michigan.

Just not sure how this all relates to the topic that was started?????

With the absolute finite number of anything original, and the prices rising exponentially every year, we newbies are pretty limited in what we can do. I am looking to just buy the best pumps I can afford and restore them to what suits my taste. I'll never be able to afford a nice original globe in the companies that I like. There shouldn't be a class war between the people that have the originals or are dedicated to own only originals and the people that simply enjoy the look of the pieces. To plagiarize a famous quote-"Can't we all just get along here?"

NO, but it sure makes for some fun reading!

In the long run we usually make up though.

I'm with you though, you gotta buy what you can afford. There's always room for some well made reproductions, just helps if they are identified as such.

Would be nice if we could all buy the real goods but prices have gotten too crazy and some times you just can't own it.

I need to get something off my chest. I stated in an earler post that I had no repos in my collection. I made a mistake. The few personal restored pumps I have kept, well, some have repo signage. All the globes are original, but not the pump plates/decals. So I unintentionaly lied! LOL Of course, when/if I ever obtain original signs for the pumps, the repos will be removed. Sorry.
