Royal 76 Gasoline Advertising Sign

Type of Advertising: Sign date of Creation: Unknown
Country of Manufacture: United States Original/Reproduction: Original

This item offered for your consideration is a ROYAL 76 GASOLINE - The Champagne of premium gasoline - METAL PORCELAIN ADVERTISING SIGN. This sign was from my father in law's gas station in Spokane Washington. He retired in the 1980's and saved several of the Union 76 Gasoline signs from his station. He passed away a few years ago and I came across this sign and several others while going through his effects.

This sign is 14 inches wide and 28 inches tall. From the attached photos, you can see it is in reasonably good condition for it's age and most of the minor wear and defects can be seen clearly on both the face and reverse of the sign. I remember this sign attached to the side of his service station and was exposed to the elements. It is in pretty good condition after standing up to the weather conditions of Spokane for many-many years.  

The metal on this sign is quite a bit thinner than the previous signs I have shown for bid on eBay. I don't have anything to guage the actual thickness, but the metal is very flexible when shaken back and forth. It kind of makes a noise like a hand saw blade when whipped back and forth. I know this is a strange description of it's metal thickness, but I'm sure anyone that has handled thin metal will know what I am trying to describe.

I will probably have to encase the sign in thin plywood for shipping to prevent it being bent during transit. The shipping weight might be in the 4 to 6 pounds, which will increase the postage cost. I will so my best to keep the weight to a minimum and still protect the sign for shipping.

If the winning bidder is not completely satisfied with the sign, I will gladly refund his/her bid and any shipping costs. I will ship the sign within one day of receiving PayPal payment.
