      Hi nijman, The fountain sign looks right, but hard to be absolutely sure. These signs are being faked and so one has to be very careful. Ask to see pictures of the back of the sign and post them here. I found the listing (is that the Netherlands version of eBay?), and size is roughly 3 ft x 5 ft, that would be correct. 650 euros, hmmm. $800? Be sure before you shell out that kind of dough. The arrow sign looks like it could be an international version, but not sure how old. Might be cobbled together with that stand. Maybe one of our sign experts can weight in to provide some additional advice...

      Here's a similar fountain sign that sold here in The States, for comparison:

      The "Fountain Lunch" sign is bogus, but I can't speak to the other. If it were me, I wouldn't touch either one though.

      Boy it's good to have guys like you around. So hard to tell. nijman found the right place to check, that's for sure.

      Tardy to the party, but I do not believe the "Fountain Lunch" sign is a repop. The images aren't the best, but from what I can see, the font looks correct and period. The reproductions, that I think are produced in India, are very crude and shoddy with their build quality, have artificial chips with fake weathering (orange compared to blackish-brown), and overall have modern looking serif font in "delicious and refreshing". I tried to explain it here in this old pic:

      This sign, in the post above, looks of better quality and is overall solid. The lettering looks period and the up-close shots show strong sharp enameling. But it's hard to tell when not in person with small poor quality pics. Signaholic probably knows more than me but I just remember doing a lot of research on the fakes of these signs. The other sign I can't say. I forgot how to tell the difference between real and fake cast iron bases for coke signs, so I really can't say much other than it might be a hand made piece because of the wonky coke logo and brush strokes on the "5 c.".
      It's probably too late but it's just my two cents.
