I'm hoping to find a good picture of the pump plate for an Oriental Poly Octane made in Colorado. Any picture would help. I have a picture of an example in bad shape. Thanks for your help.

what you show appears too be a decal,
upon google'ing this all that appears is globes-
possibly no pump plate was ever produced? .. ... cool

I’d be happy with a sticker/ decal picture also.

probably looks like this with some additional 'company' lettering at the bottom.

The background is red. "Oriental Polyoctane" is blue. The other graphic and lettering is white.

And a blue border. That's my opinion of how they were originally anyway. Obviously mine is pretty faded out too. If you have these remade I can measure lettering, etc. for scale. And I highly recommend t-way.

Yes please send measurements of the letters for scale. I plan to restore the pump back to its glory.
