There are no grommets on that sign just wear where the screws or attachment to the pump would have been.

Hawkike, great photo! Looks identical to mine! Good to know. Thank you so much for the photo and the help. Would you also happen to have a photo of the back?
I really appreciate your help and time.

It looks like it should have had grommets to keep the fasteners off the porcelain

The back,just as found 40 years ago.

Tankar--were you referring to this sign when you said "junk"? Just wondered as it is an original and no doubt it had grommets originally.

Thanks!

Hawkike,

Thank you! The back of mine is the same as yours minus the red paint. The back of mine doesn't have any rack marks (the straight narrow lines you see across the backs of a lot of porceline signs) I was worried that may indicate it is a repro. However, again mine is identical to yours front and back (just a different batch number/IR year and without the red paint on the back).

It's hard when all this stuff was already antique and well out of service before I was even born. Helpful guys like you definitely make "doing our homework" a bit easier.

Thank you.

Dallas,

Dallas,
I don't know if you used the search box to look for older posts on telling the originals from repros on the Standard signs, but I had posted on one of those threads the easiest way I know to check.
The corners on the repros are sharper than originals, so I told about the "half dollar test". The curve of an original sign corner follows the curve of a US half dollar coin exactly. On a repro it will not, it's too sharp. I had posted photos in that thread as well, but I'm not sure with the age of the thread if it will still show the photos.
Darin

Thank's Darin. This website seems to reject my photos everytime I try to post them. I can Email them I guess. Juat nice to get a second opinion. Mine definitely have the wider radius corners like Hawkike's. Hard for me to come across a half dollar here in Canada! Haha. I don't think I even have one in any American coins I got.

Will search up your older threads and see if I can find it. I sure appreciate your help!
