Vintage Gulf No-nox Sign Additional Details
We sell all of our original petroliana advertising in unrestored condition because it is our belief that each blemish is part of the unique history of that item. This vintage Gulf No-nox sign is in Near Mint/Excellent (NR-MT/Exl) condition overall, with only some wear on the far right edge of the sign preventing it from a full Near Mint (NR-MT) grade. The sign face and graphics are exceptionally clean, and this is as nice of an example of this now over 70-year-old sign as you will find for sale. (In fact, many graders would consider this to be a Near Mint sign, but we always round down a grade if it's close. In our eyes, Near Mint mean just as it would have come out of the original package with no visible damage whatsoever. A full Mint grade would only ever be given to an item that is truly pristine/unused/uncirculated.)
