    A friend of mine acquired this from cleaning out a neighbors garage. Two hours of Googling Crown Gasoline came up with two matching results, but neither gave much information about the history of the sign. It's a two sided porcelain sign with a 90 degree bend on one end for hanging purposes, measuring 26" x 26" less the 90 degree bend. The edges have some corrosion & a couple spots around the "Standard Oil Company" have some corrosion which look like they were due to impurities in the metal. We are really looking for a opinion on if it's worth selling or just hanging it in our garage! I can't figure out what it's worth!

      Nice piece, standard oil company is very collectable. When I have a mystery piece, I also run a search for private collectors and dealers online. Have found that most people are very willing to help.
