Any ideas of value of this Penno tin. It's about 16"-18" diameter. Thanks

I'm sure I'm wrong, but that almost looks like a rocker can side but it would be awfully hard to cut out. Is it possible that could be a side of one before rocker was made? Are there any mounting holes?

There are no mounting holes and it is much thinner metal than a rocker can has. I'm not sure how or where this sign would have been mounted. It is embossed a little bit like maybe two were put together in s lollipop stand?

Definitely looks like the side of a rocker can not sure the exact process but if it's thin and flimsy it would stiffen up after being pressed together to make the can?

with that diameter... i would guess it to be a tire insert. definitely not a rocker can. Penno rockers dont have a yellow border like that
