SIGN AUTHENTICITY, SHELVING and VALIDATION Speedracer 3 hours ago
IMPORTANT PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE HOBBY, OR HAVE QUESTIONS REGARDING SIGN AUTHENTICITY AND SHELVING……..

I have seen a lot of collectors posting that they think their sign is real because of shelving or fake because no shelving. I replied in another post with the following. Please read if you are interested……

I have been a collector for a long long time, and I would like to make something clear to everyone (as a learning experience).

Real signs can have shelving or no shelving. Period

Fake signs can have shelving or no shelving. Period

Shelving does NOT validate a sign’s authenticity.

What does help is knowing which signs should have shelving and which ones shouldn’t. It also depends on age sometimes. For example, there are numerous real porcelain pump plates that have almost no shelving at all. There are also numerous fakes that have shelving when their real life counterparts didn’t. There are also numerous fakes that don’t have shelving when the real versions did. (some real Sinclair, Pure and Texaco PPP’s for example have almost no shelving at all. Some fake Coca Cola signs have serious shelving). And this goes for all signs of all shapes and sizes, not just pump plates.

I am speaking from years of experience. I am not claiming to know the authenticity of all signs, as India is producing them by the hundreds or thousands each day. But one thing I can tell you is that shelving, wether present or not, doesn’t mean squat, unless you know what sign your dealing with and what the original should be.

Regards,
Steve

Smith-Miller GMC MOBIL Tanker Double Hose Kit Jolly-John Sun Jan 08 2023 10:48 PM
This is a vintage reproduction kit for replacing the two hoses usually missing from the Smith-Miller GMC MOBIL toy tanker truck. This kit contains everything you need to get the correct hoses back in place, extending and retracting like they originally did. These hoses are accessed by the door on the lower right side of the tanker body. As I mentioned, these hoses are typically missing from many of the S-M MOBIL tankers out there.

This complete kit contains two correct hoses, two brass nozzles, two hose retention ferrules, and two retraction tension springs.

The price is $30, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.
