I was wondering if anyone had any info. about this sign. Someone told me they call them "ad signs" but I've never seen a example.
Is this legit? Any info. at all would be helpful. thanks

In my opinion, this is a newer reproduction. The signs were of thin metal with folded over edges to give them strength. They were lithographed and the backs were allowed to surface rust....showing distress. I'd walk away from this. Paul www.severngaspumps.com
