I have had this Delco sign for 20+yrs and always assumed it was from the 1940's. The date code in the corner reads as A-715. Any help on deciphering this would be appreciated. As well any help with value also appreciated. It measures 25"x 8". Thanks

there is a glare on the battery, I'm assuming it is a 6v battery,
GM (delco) started using 12v batteries in '55, your sign would be early 50's/40's
IMO that A-715 isn't a date code
value - condition: in the 100. neighborhood .. ... cool

Right, not a date code, and by the looks of picture. it was a rack sign with the rods cut off that would have attached to the rack that held the batteries.


Wanted early tin litho signage.
petro, farm, auto, etc.
