I purchased this Texaco gasoline desk sign recently at an estate sale. As a result, I have no information on its age but it looks like it could have been around for a while.
The round portion measures 5 inches across and stands 10.5 inches tall. The front says "Texaco Gasoline Motor Oil, Made by The Texas Company, USA, Reg. U.S. Pat. Off.". The back is solid red in color. It is made of metal of some sort.
There are no dents or scratches. The 'lollipop" portion has a slight wobble where it meets the round base. When I took the photo, I inserted a tiny piece of the small end of a toothpick in to the back by the round base and that made it stand tight. The bottom of the base has a felt cover and I assume it is covering a nut that holds the lollipop on. I don't want to take that felt off to tighten the sign. Also, when I obtained it, it was quite dusty
Delivery will be via USPS First Class Mail Parcel from Nevada. Buyer to pay delivery charges of $5.95.
SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and a package cost the same amount regardless of where it was being shipped to in the United States. This year they went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to $1.43 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap and on top of that, this year Paypal started charging a currency conversion fee of 4.4%. International shipping now depends on the destination country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
