I have a chance to purchase this sign but don't know what to offer. Any idea of its age? Cannot find any info about it.

    Similar SOHIO signs in my 1999 book go for $ 800.00 and up in good condition with all the clips. I don't have any Shell Oil books but that shold at least give you a ball park figure

    In the 2005 copyright version of Amistadis Antique Advertising Gas,Oil, and Automobile Signs Volume One, that they show your sign, that is if it's a one-sided 48 inch diameter, which I believe it is. This sign appears to be a grease gun display, the bad news, it doesn't give the date of creation for the sign. The good news, it does give value which I think you'll be happy to hear,............ are you ready............. $3000-$5000!!!!!!!!!!! now granted, this sign in this book is in pristine condition graziers appears to have some chipping. So I believe as long as you're not paying more than $3000 for your sign you should come out smelling like a fat cat. Hope this helps you. Mike

    Just remember friend, CONDITION is everything and I would not buy something just to make money on it unless I knew where I could resell it............a very good friend in the antiques business once told me," Buy what you like, you may have to look at it for a LONG time" I have always heeded his advise.

    if you do get this sign you should try to add the correct lubrication dispencers like they have on the picture. Its only got 3 of the 7 "guns" attached to it.
