How about those grommet locations? And the description just cracks me up.

that grommet location is the same as the Shell Green Streak pump sign, Shell bought Gasco & Gasco was headquarted in Oregon the same as the seller-
sellers description:

Here is an original Gasco Motor Fuel Sign. 12 inch round. Its a rare one & pretty much is what it is & it exists. Has chipage in porcelain as u can see in the pics. Take a look & see what you think... cool

You can really notice the difference in the level of text in the glare/flash of the real gasco.

Somebody got a screaming deal on that one. This is what happens when the first thing you think is "is it real" Gasco is so rare a lot of people haven't even seen one. So people don't bid. I suppose we will be seeing knock offs of this one now. Maybe there already are I just haven't seen one. This is one way small signs get devalued IMO.

Congrats to the "new" owner of this sign. I had won the item off ebay but wasnt planning on saying so until it was in hand. Ofcourse after "recent events" the seller has changed his mind on the sale...lol. Funny thing is...I would have matched the mystery person's better offer and then some if he gave me the chance..oh well.. cant win em all.


Mainly focused on Oilzum, Jenney, Harris Oil items & original paint gas pumps.
