I hate to say this, but it may also have a large dent, if the idiots dropped it when taking it down. That cannot be a light sign. So if you happen to see that same sign at a show (not a sign you see every day anyway, but...) don't write it off as the wrong one if it has a large dent, or no neon, etc. It may be the same sign. Look for the other tell tale signs.
I am looking to add a 42" HC Sinclair sign to my collection that is equal or better in quality to my 48" HC Sinclair. Please note, I'm searching for the 42", not the more common 48".
I would like to make a wall display with a 42" HC, 42" Texaco, 42" Red Crown and my 48" sign throws the symmetry off. Please let me know if you know of any available. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
What a great sign and family heirloom! I snapped a pic on my IPhone for reference....I will keep a look out for your sign, Rick, while I'm on the petroleum show circuit, Hershey, Carlisle, etc. Your pic shows many little patina and mounting clues that could be used to identify it. If found, your post and the state police might be enough to catch those SOBs. Good luck....Roger
I Purchased the sign! Unfortunately the price ended up increasing significantly because of its popularity and my good friends new knowledge on its rarity. I can’t blame him... Most importantly I’d like to thank everybody here on oldgas.com who helped me get the confidence to buy such an expensive piece. I hope to enjoy the sign for sometime to come. If for some reason it does have to go I will first think of oldgas and the people involved in making it great.
