It's authentic, it's not rare or one of a kind.

I saw some repops of this sign at Michigan Gas and at Columbus. The owners admitted they were repops. I wish I knew the difference, so I could bid on this.

Camron, if you (or anyone else) knows the difference, can you please PM me? Thanks.

Rick,

Thanks for the response. You actually jogged my memory (which is hard to do - lol) and now that you mention it, I believe they were fiberglass.

Thank you,
Steve
