It's bogus. This guy sells nothing but junk week in and week out. They are stepping up their game and really remaking a lot of different stuff! Last I looked he had 400 auctions running...


Mainly focused on Oilzum, Jenney, Harris Oil items & original paint gas pumps.

I'm going to lean towards, "fake" as well. I looked at mine (see photos) and see several differences like the barn cupolas, wheels on the tractor, hole placements, etc.

The one thing is, mine is the other version (see center writing around the star), so it's "possible" that some of the details could be different.

Good luck on your decision!

picture of model too match sign of subject:
green appears too be off, please post picture
of the back of sign & I'll do likewise .. ... cool

the white is awfully bright on sign of subject.
that sign of subject looks terrible,
agree with above verdict..

The a**hole selling it can't chip the porcelain at mounting holes on a tin sign, so he scratches the paint off there to make it look used.


Wanted early tin litho signage.
petro, farm, auto, etc.

And he manages to get almost 1K for it! It blows my mind how these sellers continue to get away with it. Not one person catches on and leaves a bad feedback?
