Need help identifying the age of this sign please!
It has an AAW 1 - 9 on the lower right.
Thank you!

Here are a couple pictures of your version of that sign. Looks like 1950's based on cars in background and tow truck.
I've found QS stuff is hard to date specifically.

I would assume AAW is the makers mark of The American Art Works in Coshocton Ohio.

I wrote this reply for dating the earlier Quaker State signs:

Your logo was used in the 1950s and I have seen a 1962 advertisement with the same sign. So they were used for a number of years. Cheers, Don.
