Value of Mobil Pegasus and not so old CONOCO sign - Wed Jan 18 2012 08:03 AM

How about a value on the porcelain Mobil Pegasus (right facing). It's 9 feet by 4 feet (from tip of front hoof to end of the far wing. Really nice with only a few quarter size blemishes. As you can see, it's in four pieces. The base is 3 inches. The sign does not come off the base. The second item is what I believe to be an 80s version CONOCO plastic sign. It too is in really good shape and has an aluminum ring around it. The plastic has a few scratches, but no cracks or missing pieces. What do you think it's worth?

Sorry for chopping this up so much. The Mobil Pegasus Adv sign has "T-58" identified on the bottom. I'm pretty sure the 58 stands for 1958. What's the "T" signify?

Pegasus in that condition should land around $2500, maybe a little more if someone wanted it bad enough! Can't say on the Conoco?

Thank You K.W. The CONOCO sign was a "freebie." Not sure of value at all, but it would add some atmosphere to somebody's huge man cave.

$2500 sounds about right. The T58 means it was mfg. by Texlite in 1958.

CONOCO? A bit yellowed out, pretty large for the average collector....

$60-100.

Pretty sure the Conoco is supposed to be that carmel color? I'd bet it would bring $200 most places. Its in pretty nice shape.
