If I recall the story right his father had priced everything before he passed. I know a few people who have bought from him and they said he will work with you but he will not give it away and I can't say that I blame him.

It is the same globe. He was a nice guy to deal with, but as you say he didn't give it away. I had been watching his site every since he first advertised the collection here an Old
Gas a year and a half ago hoping it would come up for sale. I happened to click onto his site the day he put it up for sale and the next day I had it bought. The story was that his family would come to Dubois every summer to spend time at a dude ranch there. His dad went throgh a attic of a closed filling station and found that one and a Chevron globe. The worst part was the other side is cracked but his dad glued it together, which it is stilled glued. To me as a Wyoming native and old Frontier employe I had to have it. I do consider it a piece of company and Wyoming history. Mitch

I don't know if there is a OldGas "Story of the year" but if there is, I nominate J.E. Radebaughs Buy of the Year as the story of the year for 2013!!! What a great window into your family's past! Thanx for sharing that with us!

I have had some very cool buys during 2013 and I don't get to keep much for my own collection but it makes me extremely happy to be able to un-earth/rediscover many of these items and to be able to be the caretaker for them for a short amount of time! The people are another wonderful side of these finds/buys also! Sellers and buyers have some great stories and personalities.

I've been wanting a Vertical sign since I started doing this but I have never wanted a ordinary one.
I was called about the 2 Penn. tires signs and after getting them home and cleaned up, I had to sell the better one but now the vert. sign is my first vertical sign in my own collection! I really enjoy the way the letters are very gothic looking and it is a eye catcher even tho it is simple.
Pictured on my wall, in my home, next to Crushy and I had to edit out the mess on my computer desk. wink

2013 was a better year than I thought, Picked a lot of hard to find signs here in New Mexico
Here's is early one from the 1920s it does have service station on the bottom

Uploaded with ImageShack.us So I guess that would qualify as gas and oil

In December, picked up these Cities Service quart cans all in one lot & this harder to find red clover sign.

Also in 2013 a 16 ft marquee sign from an auction & this 6 ft Cities complete pole sign from an 2 OldGassers.

All of these (except the marquee) started with an inquiry nearly 6-months before coming to fruition. It was quite the waiting game, but as always well worth it.

(hopefully 2014 is just as good, if not better!)
