Right, Frank. As I indicated, there's not much buying pressure for MANY SHELL items (but not all SHELLl items). Signs are one of the exceptions, because guys who collect signs in general (not necessarily SHELL collectors) will buy them. Or, one of the original, tall SHELL oil bottles. Again, any oil bottle collector who doesn't already have one will be interested. But, put a comparable age SHELL handy oiler out on your swap table, next to a Mobil Pegasus handy oiler, and I know which one will sell first, and likely for more money. When I'm vending at a swap meet, I find that most SHELL "smalls" linger in my inventory for quite awhile. And, I almost never have a person come into my swap space, and ask, "Do you have any SHELL stuff?". However, it's common to have guys come in, and ask for Mobil, Texaco, and Phillips 66 goodies. And, I vend mostly in the Midwest, where SHELL had pretty decent marketing exposure. Just what I've seen over the years. John
