Yes have had a few people question it but asked a few people I trust that sell a lot and say it's real if I'm wrong I'll take add down if I can figure out how

These bottles, in my opinion, are fake. These started showing up a few years ago along with the Hudson bottles. The people that are telling you they are real are probably the ones that had them made(AGAIN-MY OPINION}... These were all over EBAY at one time and were showing up at shows, also.....

Yes they are fakes. The same crook that peddles the fantasy Hudson jars does these too. Every year at Hershey and other shows he moves a bunch. Has them in greasy grimy crates to add to the deceit as he pushes them onto unsuspecting buyers.


Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

Yep...one of the most lucrative reuses of a mayonnaise jar I've ever seen. (unfortunately at the expense of uneducated buyers)
You see them all over the country now...........junk with high prices on them.
