Hello everyone looking for opinions on this sign I feel it's suspect. It has a curve to it. It has heavy shelving. 15 3/4 tall.cant find another. Need some help on this one.

I kinda felt that way. There are no rivits.and the rust, it just didn't look old enough.like new rust. But man the shelving on the layers of porcelian had me going a little bit.
A couple more opinions would be nice,before I use it for target practice.

They did a nice job on the sign but the two things that tell me it is not original are only two mounting holes and the dome shape. For the size of the sign it should have four holes and where would a domed sign be used. A couple other things are most original pump plates are 8 to 12 inches not 15 and Shell did not use yellow pump plates.
