I briefly had this in my hands for awhile, back a dozen years or so. A cast metal holder with glass window that held cardboard signage that displayed the current gas price of the day. This would have been bolted to a Pump or a nearby pole. The cardboard that appeared in the window display, the one that showed a little browning from the sunlight, is the one that had gas at 9 cents a gallon plus taxes at 4 cents and 1 cent. 14 cents a gallon! I think that puts the time frame at about 1934. Additional cardboard signage included pricing all the way up to 20 cents per gallon, plus taxes. I'm not this type of collector so it found a new home.
