    More from his revised listing:


    "This is a wonderful Porcelain Studebaker sign probably from the 1930's or 1940's. No it's NOT! It is a Safeway sign from Texas in the early 1960s. I got duped on this sign because I didn't know any better. Thanks to everybody for helping me straighten this out. I did not mean to intentionally misrepresent this item. I suppose a grocery store sign is worth considerably less than a car dealership sign, so I have adjusted the price. Thanks again to everybody.

    It has rubber gromets in the three of the four mounting holes and is 13 1/2" round. Condition is fantastic and it is guaranteed authentic..........authentic grocery store. Thank you. "

    JDP,

    Maybe you can snatch one off of a Giant food store and convince the guy it is a super rare one off of a Graham dealership back in the '30's!

    Poor guy, from his listing:

    Q: Safeway grocery store logo. Definitely NOT a Studebaker sign. Hope the info helps. Jeff
    Aug-02-06
    A: It does, thank you

    Q: I'm not sure how you plan to authenticate this sign. It's not a Studebaker sign. It's from a Safeway supermarket. The age is 1960s.
    Aug-02-06
    A: I don't think I will, I'm starting to figure that out. Thanks for the comment.

    Q: What documentation do you have to prove that this is a studebaker sign? Please advise. Thank you
    Aug-02-06
    A: Nothin, Thanks

    Q: Looks like the sign on my Safeway food store, never seen a Studebaker sign like that.
    Aug-02-06
    A: Got it, Thank you

    Q: Are you sure? This looks like a Safeway (grocery store) sign. They still use this sign today.

    A: Oh that's funny. If it is, I got took! Can someone let me know for sure, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

    There is another just like it on the Safeway supermarket up the street.
    Safeway and Giant have been gone from Richmond for 20 years, but I would recognize that anywhere.
