There currently seem to be a lot of 12" round Indian Gasoline pump plates on eBay. I some regards they look genuine, but in others they look suspicious. The font for "GASOLINE" looks irregular and the have a "29" at the bottom. Indian Refining Company didn't start using this design pump plates until after The Texas Company took them over in 1931. (This 29 might mean sign number 29, I guess.) Any thoughts?

There seems to be a massive fake sign operation going on in Tennessee these days.

Interesting that you say that. There has been some joker in Tennessee who has a lengthy record of "creating" old Colt and Smith & Wesson handgun boxes. Maybe it's a cottage industry!
