    my husband found these while roofing a house under the shingles.....we are wondering how old they are and if they have any value? after doing some research on the internet we cant seem to find this sign anywhere except replicas that were made as decals in 2008, no idea on the original....

      wow!! an amazing sign. in exelllent condition 5000-8000 in this condition im unsure but still very cool and rare! after writing that i realized the one im thinking of is cardboard so im un sure if they ever made an original tin one. but in my opinion it real.

      I would with out a doubt, say they are original circa 1920's signs. I agree with oilman514 that in execllent condition could go in that 5000-8000 range. But with any Antique or Collectible CONDITION IS EVERYTHING! That said I can give you good example. Two weeks ago I sold a double sided porcelain Murad Turkish Ciggarette Sign on ebay. In 2008 the same sign in near mint condition sold for $9500.00 plus a buyers premium of $1900.00 for a toltal of $11,400.00 at auction. My sign in poor but displayable conditon sold for $367.00. I would think yours due to rarity and high interest in oil stuff might go for 400-600. Not a bad for a free find.

      Agreed that a mint one of these signs is very valuable. A VERY cool sign indeed!!
      I hope to be fortunate enough to stumble across one sometime!
