Oh man!!! While investigating what I thought was surely a fake sign being sold on ebay by Rustyrelics, I noticed that she had a sign for sale just like one I had bought recently. So I went and checked my ebay bought listings, and sure enough, I bought the sign from this person!!!! How does Charley Brown say that? AAAAUUUHHHGGG!!!!
Damn I wasn't paying attention!!
Did I pay $700 for a fake sign???
I did, didn't I!!
Great!! Now I get the fun of trying to get my money back.

I found this one for comparison.

http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=633869


I noticed there is a hole inside the border in the upper outside corner.
There was one other image via Google that also had this hole.
Mine does not have this hole!!
AAAUUUHHHGGG!!

This particular one, which is what started me researching, looks like one I've seen sell out of India before. But not really sure.
Also there's an older Oldgas thread that pegs this person as a woman.

Note meant to say the Red border around the letters inside the top diamond is quite a bit heavier on the hern's sign ? Would have fooled me if I did not have a real one side by side to compare it to.

Well I sure would love it to be real. But now she has another one listed. It has to be fake.

Good news though. I wrote asking for refund and I mentioned that now they have another one listed. I got this reply. So I guess it's going back.

"I bought a few from a large collection and believe them to be original. But if you not happy with the item you can return for a full refund. Thank you".


Any chance anyone has a sign book with this sign in it??
If so, email me a picture from the book if you could.

Man, this is crazy, I would have been pretty sure that was a real deal. It's really taking the fun out and putting fear in. Basically, sucks big time.

Steve, unfortunately this seller has been popping these flanges out for a number of months now. This sign has been on my want list for years and I have watched many of these go off. You without a doubt have a fake sign there. get your money back and leave appropriate feedback if you can! Only way to attempt to stop that scumbag.
