While traveling through Missouri last month I met Mike Gilmore at an antique mall. He told me about this sign but my small U Haul trailer was so full that I just said no. When I got home I mentioned to a number of people that I heard about the sign and they ALL told me I was stupid not to get it. Well I. I couldn't find anyone to pick it up where I thought it would be safe. Mike brought it to Chicishea,Ok. and Butch Greer picked it up for me (thanks again Butch). My son-in-law left Friday to pick it up from Butch and is on his way home with it now. Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with transportation ideas

I saw the sign this past Friday in Chickasha. It is VERY pretty with little or no scratching.

Marked 'Property of Gilmore Company' on the lower right.

Mike Gilmore has no relationship to the Gilmore Oil Company, only shares a last name. He bought this sign at Iowa show a number of years ago and just did the neon this past year. I'll be hanging it up this weekend and will post a picture
