    Platolene 500 porcelain gas sign that I found in southern Indiana today, it's 6 foot in diameter and has the steel ring around it. Before today, I had never heard of this type of gas, from my research they were established in 1957 in Terre Haute, Indiana and are still in business today. It does have some condition issues, so it's probably going to be an outside sign. Thanks for looking!

      That's a nice sign!! A nice scrubbing and waxing will shine it nice, is it double sided?

      Thanks trey, I believe it's a rare sign, I ve never seen one or heard of this brand.
    5. chevy59 chevy59, 9 years ago
      Thanks tommy1002, yes it's double sided, I will probably buff it it out once we decide where it's going to go.
    6. chevy59 chevy59, 9 years ago
      Thanks for the info MMM, if i stumble across a pole, definitely a possibility, but may just knock the rust off and put it under the over hang on my barn.

      Chevy, if you want to put it on my wall until you find a spot, I wouldn't mind!!!
    8. chevy59 chevy59, 9 years ago
      I hope you have a large space on your wall, this sign is very heavy with the steel around it, if I hang this thing on the wall, the wall may come crashing down. Lol

      My Grandfather had a service station in the late 1950s, Kelleys Platolene 500, in Owensville, IN. Would loved to find some of the original memorabilia.
