Can anyone out there tell me if this is a real sign or not. I have had it for quite a while now and have always been curious. I did not pay alot for it. Any help would be great. Here is the front

Here is a picture of the back of the sign. It is white porclain. There are no grommets on the sign.
Thanks, Ryan

Ryan, the lack of holes and the backside condition makes me think it is a repro. Hope I'm wrong.

FAKE
The original has 3 flat brackets on the back, NO HOLES because the sign hung on a rack.
ALL that I seen are single sided.

I should have given more info on the sign so that everyone is on the same page. It is a pump plate and is around 12 by 12.
Here is a close up of one of the holes with a chip. There are two near the top of the sign that are also chipped. Thanks guys, Ryan

Ryan-
Sorry to say but it's without a doubt a repop. One just sold one ebay a few weeks ago, and it too was fake.
