UPDATE - USING A MAGNIFYING GLASS - I FOUND THE FOLLOWING IN THE UPPER LEFT TOP CORNER
I Tried to trace it - the closet I have gotten is a 1911 report of the Annual Report of the Public Printer which lists Form 979 of the Forest Department. I am contacting the Forest Service to determine if they can help me in this search.
This is a rare vintage sign of the National Forest Service - Department of Agriculture.
The original sign has the emblem as displayed above with the wording
These signs were posted in the forest and usually forgotten and allowed to rust away - as this one shows evidence of damage caused by being in the ground for many years.
View the entire sign - as all of the lettering is there - but it has suffered over the years. It is approximately 13 in by 4 in and was attached with nails
I like it because it is old and represents a time gone by.
If anyone is familiar with this specific type of sign - Boundary of Timber Sale - I would love to try and date it.
I COULD NOT ATTACH THE 3 VERSIONS OF THE FOREST SERVICE SHIELDS - 1905 1920 - 1938 - BUT IF YOU WOULD LIKE COPIES - E-MAIL ME
AGAIN THANKS FOR YOUR INTEREST
