Thoughts on this sign? Looks good to me, but not 100 percent sure.

sign in question resembles example B
example B, is raised around the outer edge as you can see in picture of back of signs
sign in question, has bare metal all around outer edge as if
it was grounded off-
*yellow of sign in question definitely doesn't match example signs which would lead me too believe sign could be possibly
be earlier than examples .... your 2ยข .. ... cool

Signs have me so sketched out these days. I have seen the ladies and the mens versions before, but not the toilet.
