I found this 1940 sign yesterday and purchased the clock today! Talk about good karma! I saw one of these signs hanging on someones barn. I stopped to ask about it and he said it was not for sale. Then he stated "too bad I dont have another one laying around somewhere". I followed his gaze and saw a dirty rusty metal sign laying under the barn. smile Not perfect, but cleaned up pretty good. Especially considering that untill recently, they were used as part of a cattle feed trough! Purchased the 1959 pam clock today. Though they are from diffirent eras, I'd say they make a pretty good pair.

I would love to see your Gillette, Fisk, or other tire items you would like to show off!

Is there much value to the sign? It is painted metal, about 6'.

There is one on ebay buy it now, under 300'00 if I remember correct. Just deleted off watch list or I could give you number. It was local pickup so it didn't make sense for me to drool over it.

Yea I saw the one on ebay too. It is actualy a newer one that matches the clock. Would have loved to have it, but not worth a cross country drive.
