There is a Pam Lincoln Mercury lighted advertising clock for sale on eBay. The face is Pam but the canister is Telechron. Any idea if this is real face or newly made face. Never seen this before and it has me stumped.

Always looking for back-lit advertising clocks, prefer Telechron, American Time & Electric Time. Also Pam in good condition.

If the face is Pam and the can is something else....Well that should tell you something, no? Pams cans were metal or aluminum. If the can was toasted how would the face survive in this condition? IMO thats a sucker lure-and for 750.00 youd be a nice catch.

All those advertising clocks scare me anymore. The mismatch is a BIG red flag. I remember how few clocks you saw 20 years ago with mint faces, and now they have all magically surfaced?? I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole.

just do your research and stick to buying them in-person. thats the only way to safely buy these clocks. reach thru and feel the back of a KNOWN original, and then feel a repop... original will feel far more chalky to the touch and the emblems/numbers will not feel raised.

I stay away from advertising clocks. I would only buy one if I could actually find one in person and confirm it. Other than that it's a very risky online purchase.
