Is this a real sign, or did someone just take a serious bath?  The only sign I've  seen that was close to this was a Phoneco sign.

Looks like a fake to me, but I'm no sign expert



This is an original hubcap posted by Sargeguy some time ago, 2018.

Four differences: 1) the bell is solid blue porcelain, not pixelized; 2) the color is darker; 3) the porcelain letters are raised up, as expect; and 4) the mounting holes are near the edge.

This is one comparison of posted images by me.

I know nothing about signs but do know there are 2 or 3 sign experts on the forum that could help out.

IMHO, someone paid too much for that sign on Mecum.


A case of someone having more money than common sense.  But it took at least 2 people to drive the price up that high.
