This is an old 'Lion Coffee' flange sign.
Not really sure of the age, but looks quite old
It measures about 5.5" x 9"
Same on both sides
Condition is fair, but has a nice look

    Lion Coffee dates from 1864. It was acquired by the Woolson Spice Co., here in Toledo around 1882. They would put a picture postcard into every coffee package they sold. Many of these cards are all over the internet today. It basically was in business until the early 1920s. I believe your sign would date from the late 1910s to early 1920s. If you ever get tired of the sign, please let me know. A great piece of Toledo history!

    Thanks to both jameyrd & mikielikesigns2 for your comments.
    And thank you for the history lesson about this neat little flange sign. I've had it for probably close to thirty years, and really like but I might be interested in passing it along someday. I know I can't sell through this site, but I will keep you in mind, jameyrd.
