Sinclair published two versions of the dinosaur stamps. The earlier versions are the two-tone stamps. The second issue was in 1959 and was the multi-color stamps. The earlier stamps had "Sinclair" printed on them. The second did not, at least on the set I have.

Also, the first issue apparently involved two albums. So far I only have the second volume, but have seen the first so am keeping my eyes open.

I believe Jim Drummond lists all of these in his catalog by the way.

Thanks to all for reviving a very old memory. When I was very small my dad took us all to see the life size Sinclair Dinosaurs in the parking lot of a Pennsylvania shopping center. I remember being awed by the giants and walking through a tent full of exhibits where I got no stamps but I still have my souvenier plastic ankylosaurus.
If you google Sinclair Dinoland you can see it in all its glory. 1964? really? I'm so old.

From 1952, five sets of Sinclair Oil "Early American Car Stamps". Shown are the front and back covers as well as the stamps.

Lovely scans, well done.
The patented fuel, I wonder if that was the addition of lead ?

Sunoco went with coins instead of stamps. You could get the silver colored ones with a fill up. The bronze colored ones were from a company that specialized in all manner of collectibles. There was probably a tie in with Sunoco but I don't know how people went about getting the bronze ones.

The back of the silver coins bear the Sunoco logo. The back of the bronze coin have the logo of whatever company made the car on the face.
