I don't have any Johnson items but just want to say great job on COTM and great job to all the guys that already did it. I hope I can do half the job everyone else has done for Signal in May. Congrats. Ted

Ted, I'm positive you will do great. I was a little nervous at first, but am pumped up to have done it. Almost don't want the month to end. Well, 2 days left and I think I have it timed just right. I got enough pictures to cover tonight and tomorrow and wind up empty. The ones posted above are original pictures we have of stations with the exception of the last one that I pulled off the internet some time back. My favorite is the first one because of the signage and the a-38 each with different ad glass.
The next 3 are the start of the end. I fiqured I would end the month with items we don't have but are looking for and know are out there. We have accumulated pictures at shows and from fellow collectors and friends. You gotta know what you're looking for.

Anyway, first is a JORECO can. Only one we know of. Would look dynamite next to Bob's killer globe. Next is a single A38 ad glass with a logo we didn't know existed until recently. A friend sent us this picture taken in the early 90's in Des Moines. Last one is a banner that has the same logo as a pinback button that we recently acquired. We think it is a earlier item, possibly from mid to late twenties.

Thanks,

Jeff

Final day, and more stuff we don't have. We have a can or 2 that came out of the breeze box, just couldn't quite score the box. Would be neat to display. Next 2 shots are of a 48" Porcelain Johnson Motor Oil and Gasolene sign that was painted over by a pro sign painter back in the day when they were focusing more on the "Brilliant Bronze-Save 3 cents" lingo. It we had it, we would leave it just like it is. Next picture is of a Brilliant Bronze lucky rabbits foot keychain. Next pic is of a flower pot. We have been told that these were made exclusively for Johnson stations. We don't know what to think. Pretty neat though. I think I see a winged hour glass in there!!

The white can in the middle of the next picture is one that we had never seen previously. Next is a checklist sign for Johnson courtesy service. We know of a few, but none have come up for sale at the right time. The next picture of the 3 cans is pretty cool. We especially like the Johnson "Stok Spra" can. Haven't seen another one of those.

Last, but certainly not least, is this Johnson Porcelain flange sign, in awesome shape. My dad and I drool over this one on a consistent basis.

Thanks,

Jeff

This is pretty cool. This is my last post at a even 100. The first picture is of a real nice early 1 gallon Johnson can from the teens. We have one, but you have to wear gloves to pick it up or you might wind up in the hospital. The last 2 can pictures are of a pretty special can. It is a real nice 5 gallon from the teens that was purchased the day after the big Ray May auction in Peotone. Ray was the one that purchased it. My dad was right behind him as the guy was pulling it out of the box to place it on the table. We had never seen Ray move that fast. I guess retiring from collecting lasted less than 24 hours. We all got a big laugh.

The last group shot is a parting gift. I have it on my computer's desktop. It looks awesome. If anybody wants a high resolution picture to do the same, shoot me a email and I can hook you up.

The last 3 pictures are of different A38 ad glass in nice pumps, all Johnson. These are the same three in one of the original pictures posted above that I mention.

That's it!! I appreciate everyone posting and giving us numerous compliments on our stuff. It really means a lot. That is how we get a kick out of having these things. I want to thank Scott and Bob one more time for posting pictures. These guys bent over backwards for me.

Finally, I want to dedicate this COTM to fellow collector Ray May. He passed away in January, and we think about him EVERY day, especially seeing some of his items in our collection now. He passed on a ton of knowledge to us and was a awesome friend. He preached always buy the quality stuff, even if it meant digging into your pockets a little deeper, because quality is the best investment. He was a quality guy and will be sorely missed.

Thanks everyone,

Jeff and Neil Johnson
