Well, my dad and I made the trip. Not a whole lot of people there, but they were not afraid to spend money. Some stuff went high. Not many bargins, but a few. Proximity to PA probably drove prices higher on items from PA. Most of this was from one estate from Syracuse NY.

Several nice very old cans there. A few items you just do not see. Bidding was strong on those.

A couple repop items went for crazy money. The "baby blue" (ie sun faded) SOCONY aircraft sign went for $900, even after the auctioneer said they were not sure if it was real and that he pulled it off a fench outside at the estate it come out of. The large Ethyl Globe was attractive but was repop lenses in a new metal body. $1150!! The Ripple Jenny was a repop globe. Lenses may have been real. That went for $2250.

Two Visible pumps both Fry's 5 gal and 10 gal. Both original condition, missing parts, 10 gal cylinder cracked. 5 gal $3300 and 10 went for $2700. M&S 80 was a amatuer resto displayed OK, missing quite a few parts. $1300.

The Pegasus Neon I should have stepped up on. $3550. Original Neon and shipping crate.

The Beacon Oils small shield sign was nice. It was real. $1050 on that.

A Pontiac weathervane old. Bidding was spirited on that, $2600.

Several lots of nice old oil bottles. All brought very good money. I bid those Sunoco Dynalubes up to $1000. They were real and very rare. The old Sunoco Mercury oil rack brought 1800. The Sunoco more common oil bottles full rack with new tops brought $500.

I recorded most prices.

All in all it was a fun day. The auctioneer was very good. He got people to spend money. Met some neat folks, got to spend some time with my dad and even picked up a few items.

I had previewed the auction and was going to phone bid as I was going to the North East gas bash. I decided not to bid after seeing the repop stuff and talking to the auctioneer. I don't think the Mobil horse was old.....I would like to know whos estate from Syracuse it was as that is where I am from and being a collector for over 30 years thought I knew everyone in town

Do you recall what the green crown sold for and if it was real? It looks good from the photo but hard to tell 100%!
Thanks,
Darin

John, it was Bob Potter. He was a Fire Insurance guy. He handled the insurance on our fire dept here in Interlaken. I knew him in that regard and knew he had a large collection of fire memoribilia, but had no idea he had the gas and oil collection. It looked like alot of it was aquired in the early 80's. I would say the majority of the stuff was real, but there was some repop stuff in there as well.

The green crown globe was real. I looked that over good. Paint was original and decent, it went for $1300.
