This sign was found at the site of the original Magnolia Petroleum camp house on the Jeems Bayou branch of Caddo Lake in Oil City, Louisiana. Magnolia was the predecessor company to Mobil and this is the earliest known use of the Pegasus of which I am aware. JR

    Wow, she's a big-un! Are you keeping it as is, restoring, or?
    Great sign gorgeman, and welcome to C.W.!!

    I'm just going to follow ya'll's advice and just move it into my shop or re-install over my gate. Without any more information I'd be hesitant to try to restore it. Besides, with the large "Magnolia" section being heavily enameled I would not have much way to address the bullet indentations.
