Only to share with you and the trade the latest fake Michelin signs offered in ebay and other markets.
Many of them are really nice repros of difficult to find real Michelin American signs produced by the Michelin Tire Company of Milltown, NJ, the American branch of the European-based Michelin tire maker.
The problem is that these repros are offered with false information or described in an undefined way... trying to cheat people.
If these people want to be honest, they must say something like: "High quality modern enamelled REPRO of Michelin Tires old sign" or so...
