Well I still like my real deal sign , if you buy the repop for $300 15 years ago and today it's worth even double $600 ( maybe )...
I bought an original 15 years ago for $3200 and today it is worth just for easy numbers somewhere between $6000-$8000 ,,, I like my sign better.. Original signs are still the best investment , been that way since the Mona Lisa..

I certainly don't have the experience to cast judgment here, so I've just been watching from a far.
But if I were to give my opinion, it's hard to argue with Kevin's evidence/logic of the logo change in 1957, and this sign is of course dated 1959.

If I did play in this high end game I may have gotten bit. Because I would have sworn I learned on Oldgas.com, that if the sailboat mast points at the "I", then the sign is good.

One thing of note is the thickness of the black circles around the stars in the upper left & right. In fact, it seems all of the black is more prominent on Wes's, and I'm assuming Kevin's sign.

you guys are just giving the guys re popping these signs all the info they need to get them as correct as they can. I just don't get it ??? On some posts the least said about specific details of a sign should be a point. Wasn't it really the point of these posts to try and stop or slow down and hopefully end the confusion on a lot of these posts instead the posts are helping the bad guy and hurting the good guy. I don't get it.

How can you have a discussion and posts if you don't talk about it and tell what's right or not ? " I don't get it " either. smile
It looks to me that maybe, just maybe, OLDGAS is working ,, looks like the guy lost his bidders on this sign in question. ?
