bought this on ebay and decided not to use it.
$60 plus shipping with insurance
sign shows wear and rust / still a cool sign

That sign is like buying a pizza with "eat fat free" on the box!

I've tried to google it, but no success. It might read "Sucker!"

I have a more complete set (don't know what's missing for extra signs-"coffee" etc)
Didn't generate much action when I posted it last year.

Certainly not made in India!

Dave its goobley gook so it could be standard/amaco/ panam.
Whatever company you wanted it to be. You would be seeing it from the road at 30+mph and you'd mentally fill in the company that is selling whatever is displayed below. That's my take on it.

You can turn your strobe light on different patterns and depending on what you smoke that night it reads the different brands. They were made during Woodstock and were used widely around that area for a few years. Very psychedelic!
