Reproduction sign link Before you buy research..Always Research .If its sold outside the US/Canada first red flag..Ask questions here. Good luck in the future.

Must be using Sufric Acid now to turn that black ring white like that! Some dangerous stuff for most folks to play with.


Always looking for Mississippi company items, Billups, southland, ride with rose.

Aged Fantasy sign, lion never used round signs on pumps. They used decals and painted metal rectangle shaped signs. Never a porcelain pump plate.

Also when looking at lion signs note the lion's back looks like he has mange. Real lion signs the lion is more cleaner cut. Repop globes also show this as well.
