frown Reproduction Mobil Pegasus E-Bay # 161386463637 This is a handmade example that I don't think will be mass produced. It does look like a NOS right out of the box, too good to be true. Even down to T-57 on the belly. No pictures of the back of course, but go into his "see other items" he has a motorcycle for sale and the unpainted Pegasus is beside the bike. It has the back enclosed so it can be painted and face either way. eek

The description has changed a lot from what it was this morning when I looked at it. Originally it did not say it was a reproduction, but anyone who knows much about originals knew it just "wasn't right" after looking at the photos closely.

These are popping up all over the place. I've met 3 diffrent people making them in Texas alone. Most have been aluminum but I have seen 1 made of steel. The ones I've seen were very well made but also obviously not real.
then again I know cookie cutters a novice might buy 1 as real.

Since the prices of these have steadily risen over the last couple years it was only a matter of time before we would see these hit the market. I guess my biggest issue with the one in question is the "T-57" marking......IMHO that is only there for one reason, and that is to fool someone "down the road". Someone who is new to the hobby, doesn't do the research and know what they are buying, or takes it at face value. While the current listing for this item is honest, buyer #3 could be the potential victim down the road.

Yep it sure did change a lot! Lots of issues with this sign. All I can and will say is small details. Almost as good as cheeses repops. Good looking repop and would fool a lot of newbies and some vets. Heck I had to look twice and stare. Ask Darin I talked to him first thing in the morning LOL.

wink Imagine down the road a few years, a few chips in the paint and some aging.... did you all see the Harley Rocker at Iowa Gas that was "aged" and later pulled for being a "rustoration" The T-57 on the belly tells the real intentions of the creator. whistle

Not sure if he is an OG member or not, but the seller is a super honest guy. I have bought several gas/oil signs from him over the years and have never had a problem what so ever. He did contact me several months back, (sent pics of new peggy) and represented it as a repop from the get-go(I prefer the real deal). So there is no question (in my mind) from past transactions and his listing description that he is representing his stuff correctly. The t-57 may become an issue down the road (buyer #3) as Darin mentioned, but an educated buyer should know the difference t-57 or not. (but it SHOULD be marked on there somewhere that its a repop)Just my 2cents worth.
