Have you looked online to see if the sellers of the reproduction gas pump stuff are offering anything like this? Might be a good place to check. John

All original ad glass I've seen in original packaging had corrugated paper. None had plastic.


Looking for photos, etc from 60s era Shell-A-Rama gas station and Pal's Diner, Rt. 17 Mahwah, NJ
& US or state highway signs, shields, route markers

Yeah, I'm thinking they are repop. The plastic was what flagged me. I just cant find any advertised in the same size.

Plastic wrapping is not old. Ad glass had the corrugated paper like Metro Petro stated. And they were sometimes packed in wood crates. Plastic seal like that was a long way off.

Here's a cool example....
