Hi All,

I wanted to start a Tombstone sign thread for fun to see all of the various brands of gas and oil that used Tombstone signs. I could have pulled a bunch of pictures off of the internet, but I think OldGas members are proud of their collections, so let's see what you own in a tombstone. Maybe after a week or so we can start posting different variations off of the internet to add to the thread.

I am going to start with two extremely common ones (because that's all I own). But let's see some more, (post duplicates if you want, it's always good to see everyone's stuff and how it's displayed). I know there are several other variations of Tombstones out there... Veedol, Associated, Sterling, Wm. Penn, Skelly, etc.... And some rare ones we don't see too often...

Enjoy,
Steve

Goes without saying...that's one heck of a mohawk neon tombstone sign...a beauty,. All the others above aren't too shabby either.

There's several Skelly's. This is the only one I have. It's the older Tagolene with the tag in it.

Great stuff so far. That Mohawk is top-notch, but they are all cool. The QS with the oil can display is cool one too.

Let's see some more......

If any one has any others they’d like to post from the internet, have at it.

Here’s a variation of the Sterling sign from a Mecum auction ...

And Glenn, that Jewel and Veedol are very cool.
