Vintage 1960 Large 5' Lighted Mobil PEGASUS Sign

Up for bid is a large 5' (five feet) in diameter lighted Mobil PEGASUS Sign . Made to mount on a wall, the lens is approximately 3 & 1/2" thick and the frame is another 4" thick, making the unit about 7 & 1/2" overall out from the wall. The lens appears to be plastic, or perhaps Lexan. It has no holes, breaks, or punctures anyw in it; t are very few surface scratches on it. This sign has been stored for a number of years in a Mobil Distributorship/Dealer Warehouse in Thomas, Oklahoma. It was heavily covered in dirt and dust when we got it. It has simply been rinsed off with a hose and a rag. The dark areas around the edge is dirt from inside the lens that is showing through to the outside and needs to be cleaned up. The sign lens hinges at the top and fastens at the bottom. This sign was manufactured by TEXLITE, and is Electric Sign No. 812428. Though this sign has been placed in use, it surely must be in 95% or better conditon. The lens is not brittle or faded as is often true of plastic signs that have been mounted out in the direct sunlight. The sign is backlit by five high intensity fluorescent bulbs, all of which work.

[A fellow eBayer emailed to say this was a 1960 sign . He has an identical one that was on the side of a Mobil gas station.]
