Mr. Bruner
I am enjoying "Signs of our past"
I have posted some images of an old Franklin Fire Insurance sign.
I love the graphics but the paint has wore off.
Do you think this would be a sign for restoration?
I have not seen another, so I don't know what the colors are.however there is a trace of red in some of the letters.
Have you seen this one?
Would you know of a person to restore this?
The size measures 271/2 in By 141/2 in, it is embossed and is self framed
with a border and I think it is made of steel, and reads," Organized 1829"
THE FRANKLIN FIRE INSURANCE COMPANY OF PHILADELPHIA
has a neat graphic of a hand pumper in center of circle. Thank You.

    Ron,
    Nice piece,never seen one before.Hard to make out the detail.Probably could be restored if another could be found to compare to.Ths cost effectiveness would need to be considered on restoration. Just my 2 cents worth!
