I have had these 3 small signs for years. I bought each one separately and always thought they were authentic. Because of the size of each one I wondered what the use of each one might have been in it’s day. I wanted to check with some other opinions. Two questions:
1) Are they each indeed authentic?
2) If so, does anyone know what each one might have been used?
The Prest-o-Lite is 9” by 3”…the AAA is 6” by 4”…the Standard is 8” by 4”.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and Merry Christmas to everyone!
Steve

here is a couple of "The Real McCoys" .. ... cool

Prest-o-Lite 10" X 3" this door push has a curved contour too it

Standard is 9 1/2" X 4 5/8", this sign was produced in different sizes

AAA- IMO - questionable

If the Prestolite is flat it’s a repop as it must have a curve to it like Randy said. Imo the Standard is also a repop by the location of the mounting holes should be inside the white border.


Wanted early tin litho signage.
petro, farm, auto, etc.

I have the same issue…it helps to check the “keep me logged” box, but that doesn’t always work either!

You can change the privacy or security settings on your browser to accept cookies. Or you could start using a more user friendly browser to visit Web sites. I recommend Firefox for desktop and mobile users. For phone and tablet users, download Firefox from your app store. For desktop users, go to:

Firefox can optionally save your user names and passwords to make logins a breeze.

Firefox offers an optional add-on to prevent Facebook from tracking your visits to other Web sites so they can sell that info to advertisers.
