This sign is beautifully detailed, it was used for Keen Kutter tires. Yes, tires. The name is completely unrelated to tires, but since the brand was so successful, it was chosen. This sign shows "K K" in black. K K meant Keen Kutter, just shortened. The sign is discolored. as the tire should be like an ivory color, almost white. The Keen Kutter logo is found on both sides of "K K" in the original red coloring. This sign is original and has not been restored. A photo of a restored version has been included to show what the sign looked brand new. This sign is made of tin, as you can see the bare metal on the worn piece. There are also rust spots that have accumulated over time, but were scrubbed off.
