Briggs Service Station (Leasburg, North Carolina)

Robert Ashley Briggs operated a store in Leasburg, and so did his son Clyde Curtis Briggs. Here is a free-oil coupon issued by one of them. Their respective stores are shown below as they looked around 2005. Do you know which store issued the coupon? The current thinking is that Ashley Briggs sold Texaco gasoline from his store and issued the coupon.
