Pretty much every one you find on ebay is a fake.

Look at the 4th picture in the Dr. Shell topic in showcase to see what authentic signs look like.

That particular sign is a fantasy "pump plate"

That Golden color pump plate is fake. That style was used as a decal on pumps of that era I believe. The red and yellow is the real deal, four grommets and a black backing.
