I am looking for lots of poor/very poor quality porcelain pump plates to use to decorate the ceiling joists in my workshop.

Anyone have a few, or a box of many, really beat ones they want to sell me?

Could I find any kind of decent quantity of these if I went to Iowa Gas?

Even rough pump plates and contains lead signs have become popular. I like them and they look good on unrestored gas pumps. The prices have gone up on them. I hope some go your way. You may want to consider adding some older rough license plates with the pump plates. They are easier to come by and your joists will fill up faster.

I did see people go crazy over a box of contains lead signs at a local auction. Seems small antique shop owners bid them up until they were over $20 each. I was hoping they would go much cheaper since there were about 25 to 30 of them in one lot. I'll definitely have to add license plates into this project to be able to afford doing it.

$75.00 with shipping is about $11.00 a piece? Years ago you could get these for $5.00 or less. As you stated, they are bringing $20.00 each in a box lot. Given enough time and effort, you might find what you are looking for at the price you want to pay? It has been my experience that new members seem to put their foot into it before they learn to just keep their opinions to themselves. Or, maybe send a PM so everyone is not in the loop?
