The picture you posted Steve is an original sign that was at the auction
At least in my opinion
Now the Harbor sign that was beside it I thought
Was suspect.


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

Whole lotta money to have anyone on the fence in the Route 32’s case, yikes! At least it looks a bit better than the eBay one 🤷‍♂️


Looking for Michelin items + NJ oil company related items (Mohawk, Guardian, Whiz, etc) + animal-related petroliana + Gargoyle/Shell/Sinclair items

As I said in my first post look at the holes chipping of the porcelain around the original none on the one in question . That signs been around a long time surely someone put it up and took it down several times . Usually the first place porcelain signs are damaged . Next is the edges the fakers notice that and chip it themselves. They weren’t smart enough to chip the holes . Since sometimes the first thing that comes up is old gas posts on google when I’m trying to find info on signs . In a way my post may be even teaching them to make the fantasy more believable. I just don’t think that the fakes will ever be crisp as the original porcelain signs if it looks sloppy And you have doubts most likely bogus.

I actually know someone who has this sign.
