Just picked this sign up from PA. Curious what its value might be??? It measures 27 1/4" long x 5 7/8" tall. Had to get it because i live in colorado. Thanks.

I am also curious about the era of this sign. And is it just a colorado thing or were there other states too? I really dont know much about this sign or Refino.

The signs I've seen include: Fort Collins, Lafayette, Ault, Eaton,and Loveland. Always looking for a few more to add to my collection...

That is correct Randy; however, I actually think they might have been in Loveland. There was a lot of pump innovation in that particular area. The other company was "Automated Devices" which resulted in the Andy Dandy globe which was the caricuture for (AD), the company. They had one station to test the mechanism which was a pump add on. Love the history and amazed at the innovation. Genius!
