"(NEW INFO)" Really take a good look at Fonts, ect! On, Pure Oil Company Sign. (PUROL with ETHYL)-30"-with the hoop style hanging bracket. I FOUND OUT, there are, at least "Two Versions" of this Exact Sign. AND! I found it totally on Accident! I recently got time too Lightly Compounded the edges and Waxed it with some 2000 grit 3M Swirl Remover. The colors look much Richer now, and it was the first time I spent any time cleaning and polishing, other than glass cleaner. So, I took a couple pictures of the sign, Feeling Proud of a job well done! :-) That when I seen it! In my Gallery on tablet, I have several pictures of other 30" Pure Oil Company signs like mine being sold at Barrett Jackson and Mecum Auctions. "(I noticed a difference in the Sign in the pictures and mine! There mostly in the Ethyl Triangle, and Sunburnt. The Fonts are quite different, there's wording Totally Left Out! Other differences are Patient Dates and the Artwork is Sharper around all edges! Also Everything is Raised on mine! not just the letter!)" Well!' That's the Differences the Two Exact Pure Signs, I've seen! So from 1924-27 they were like mine and after,? Something Happened! :-) Do you Know the reason?? I don't.

    I've done nothing to it other than, a light cleaning. One side, must have been hung against the wall and out of the Weather!
