Would really like to know how this item was determined to be a reproduction. Lot #342 in the Dec. 2nd Las Vegas auction.

http://auctions.morphyauctions.com/Reproduction_Shell_Gasoline_Die_Cut_Flange_Sign_-LOT273855.aspx

I see that the very same sign sold in a 2001 catalog auction for $3190 so someone may have been burnt badly.

Emailed Morphy's a week ago but haven't had any response.

I have a similar sign I bought a number of years ago in a Mathews auction so yeah, I'm concerned.
