I posted in the Want to Buy section many years ago and got no answers so I thought I'd try again. Back in the early 60's, my wife's father had a service station in Glendale, California. It was called Tiny's Flying A Service. If anyone has anything from that station, a sign, matchbook, map, photo, anything, we'd love to see it and perhaps buy it. After I post this, I'll update my email address.
Don't know if I can get the email address changed, so please use this one: wmbelef AT icloud DOT com.

I'm rebuilding an Eco 97 and the bell clacker doesn't reset to ring bell every time. I was wondering if I'm missing a spring inside any one with information on this with photo if spring is attached and where it is attached would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Randy
Looking to gather information regarding a sign I recently came across. It is a porcelain Pegasus. Dimensions: Nose to Wingtip 37", front hoof to rear hoof 45", front hoof to wingtip 53.5". It is not perfect, does have chipping and some paint overspray, but no touchups that I can see, slight bend in front leg. Any information on age and value would be appreciated. Do these signs always face to the left or were they made in both directions like the cookie cutter signs?
I'm currently running another eBay can auction (link below).. all of these quarts and some other early cans were listed last week and end next Sunday (11/18). They all start at $9.99 with no reserves. Bid with confidence, these all sell to the highest bidder with no funny business. Each can has detailed pictures showing all 4 sides, top, and bottom. I appreciate each and every one of your bids. Let me know if you have a question.

Shell plastic ad "glass". I believe this plastic ad "glass" goes to a Wayne 400 or 500 series pump, however I am not sure. It would look great on the wall or in an ad glass collection.
Note: This is piece is made of plastic and the light shines through. I'm calling it ad "glass", because I don't know what else to call it; but it is NOT made of glass. It is in real good shape, but not flawless.
Misc. smalls - most from the 1970's. Would look great in a smalls cabinet.
All smalls one price:
- American Gas N.O.S. Final Filter (2" dia x 11"). This was an in-line gas pump hose filter. - Oil Bottle Spout (blue plastic). - vintage McGill Change Dispenser - would look great on a gas station mannequin - works fine - Flanged Federal Law sign - DST (probably from the 70's - appears to be N.O.S.) size (4.5 x 8.5")
Thrown in the box for free:
- Oil Barrel Drum Valve - 1924 Bulk Plant Tag from a 15,000 gallon vertical tank - damage on edges (2.5 x 5") - Tokheim Pump Tag from a 1250A twin gas pump (2.5 x 3.75") - black face plate from unknown 70's pump (8.5 x 10.5") - cool old riveted belt (approx. 28" circ.)
