Nice old double sided porcelain sign that supermarkets and filling stations used back in the 50's and 60's, this sign was displayed in front of the retail store. Green Stamps were one of the first retail loyalty programs, retailers purchased the stamps from the operating company and then gave them away at a rate determined by the merchant. Some shoppers would choose one merchant over another because they gave out more stamps per dollar spent and then the shoppers could cash them in for items from the green stamp catalog.

    Thanks so much for posting your green stamp sign ! I remember back in the day when mom and I would collect stamps, paste the stamps in our stamp book, then when you have so many books you could then pick something to purchase from the green stamp catalog ! I so remember those days ! those were the good old days ! love it !

    My husband and I still have a pair of lamps that we got with Green stamps . One of them still works . I just need to take a look at the other one to see what is wrong with it . It may just need a new socket . This sign does bring back a lot of memories . My mom also collected them and I remember going to the store with her to pick things out that she wanted to get with the stamps .

  23. chevy59 chevy59, 3 years ago
    It really depends on condition, I've seen these signs sell on ebay from $150 to $300. Hope this helps!

    Great sign.
    My mother lived for S & H (Sperry & Hutchinson) Green Stamps. When she died, I found about 80 books of them. I can remember her counting all the stamps after a trip to the store. Strange, I do not remember her redeeming them for anything.

    That sign looks great. Nice find!
  28. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    This is great. A little history about S & H, they started in 1896.
