Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

They are a set of three the tiger sign is missing. All that I have seen are heavy cardboard with a "foil like" covering.


Wanted ! Cans from smaller Oklahoma oil companies.

Late 50's DP had a circus theme to their ads.
Still believe you will find they are foil covered paper

Thanks for the pic
My interpretation of foil is a lot thinner than these signs
what are they worth

Sometimes is just takes a few minutes to do a little research:

Here is an elephant one that sold for $69.00:

A tiger for $60.00

They are neat looking signs.

ah another comment from the peanut gallery!
I guess you need help figuring out why I raised my price on the Dominion!

You should have tried your oilzum thermometer to trade for the dominion instead off offering junk and then asking 1400.00 for your thermometer!
