He has a lot of fake signs listed. He claims this is an original, to the best of my knowledge, they never made a 30 inch in this size.

rustyrelics has been listing tons of fake 30" signs. they remind me of the ones that were at Iowa Gas, just now chipped up.

maybe I should buy a sign from this guy, choose local pickup, and see what he has to say in person about what he's doing

I wish I was a lawyer or had a good friend that was one to keep cost down because then I would buy one and then sue him for selling something that isn't what it's described as and maybe put a stop to this *****!!!

^ He obviously doesn't know Jack about pumps, he's listed the bennett as a bowser. Sort of a red flag right there.

Those 30" signs are getting a lot of bids, if you can believe they are real bidders.

This guy no longer has items for sale on eBay. Wonder what happened?

Did he get busted? If so, I fear he's back at it just under a different name. I'm glad this forum is here. I'm learning a bunch but still have a long way to go in looking at a picture and determining fake vs real.

He has been selling the same signs over and over .
