No Wes the logos are equally spaced from the ends. Look at the last photo. Someone would have to weld a piece on, doesn't look like it to me.

Where's this Anthony Koban's sign ?

What signs are these that you just posted above me here Randy ? This has turned into freaking mess tiring to understand.

The 2 signs above (Randy just posted) were mine. Two different versions with two different dates.

1) I can't speak on the authenticity of the eBay sign.
2) Randy, Wes, Kevin, Anthony, and Me each have a Texaco Marine Lubricants sign in their collection. ALL are real - SOME are different.

Yes there are differences. I had concerns too, therefore consulted the opinion of an auctioneer who is a member here and very well respected in the hobby for many, many years. I value and trust HIS opinion. GUESS WHO....really?

STOP beating this sign to death. My conclusion is every TEXACO MARINE LUBRICANTS sign posted in THIS thread is "The Real McCoy" with the exception of the eBay one BECAUSE the pics are not clear enough and no one here had a chance to hold it.

I just hope the eBay sign is determined to be real as well for the $8500 buyer!!!

In the listing, after "condition" it says "metal put back in flange".
Sounds like the flange was flattened and then the flange was put back.

I don't think anybody knows for sure. They are probably all fakes. Everyone that has one guarantees theirs is real.
There sure is a place for repros in this hobby isn't there.

I don't know if you own one KZ1000, ( not likely by the sound of that last comment ). I know mine is real and if Kevin says his is real I believe him and Randy. So some of us DO know for sure, whether your knowledgeable on this sign or not, we are.
Your total comment on here on this matter is why a lot of guys are leaving OLDGAS, pure negativity .. insulting and uncalled for.

Ron-- Are both of yours dated and what would those dates be for each sign? Top & Bottom sign.
The only reason I'm still pursuing this is education for myself and anyone else that cares.
