I bought this a couple of weeks ago, but I chickened out on having it shipped so I made the 9hr return trip today to go get it. I was told it was in a diner for 30-34 years and then in the person's garage I bought it from for another 12 years. Can someone let me know the date range that this particular style of sign was manufactured in?

Thanks. Yeah...tough to find a nicer one than this. Still has day 1 shine. The backside is as good as the front. That was my reason for deciding to pick it up vs having it shipped. I figured the $125.00 is gas and my time was worth it. Not to mention he threw in the B-A can for saving him the hassle of having to crate and ship it.

The $125 for gas was probably cheaper than shipping it anyway and Safer for the Well Being of the Sign.

30's era possibly into the 40's.If it was from the 20's it would have 15 "flutes'--this one has 13.--NICE SIGN!
