Pretty sure there are a few different sizes of these signs. Yours appears to me to be the smaller size. I recently had a radiator shroud that had one of these on each side. I believe the shroud I had came from a GMC powered construction tractor, or like a gas or diesel generator ,

I think you have the winning answer. This sign came in a pair. If I had to reckon I'd say they both were on the same thing at one time. Any idea on age??
