Investment Quality Collectible Petroliana

Like all of our collectible signs, this vintage Mobil Certified Lubrication neon sign is sold in original, unrestored condition, as pictured. We do not believe in restoring old signs because it is our belief that every ding, dent, and blemish is part of the story and history of the item. The porcelain enamel sign is in Excellent Plus (Exl+) condition overall, and is as clean of an example of this now over 70-year-old sign, as you will find for sale. With only minor wear to the porcelain on the sign face, many would grade this sign as Near Mint, but we always round down a grade if it's close. Any blemishes, which are few to begin with are extremely minor, and barely visible. There are no large dings from wind blown objects, meaning this sign was never displayed outdoors.
