    P&O Canton Plows - an interesting cross over piece from farm implements to transportation, International Harvester bought this company around 1910. This sign is the real deal, I found it in a dirt floor boiler room of an old commercial bldng. Someone had used it to back a large cubby shelf unit and it had been next to the boiler for so many decades that the paint got crackled from the heat. Considering its age and size it's in remarkable shape, it's about 4 by 8 and was made in two pieces. If you look close you can see the nail pattern from being attached to the shelf

      Love the sign. The plow in my picture is a P & O. If you have any other information about the sign I would like to discuss it sometime.
