    I'm not 100% sure, but I believe this sign is from the Massimo Vignelli era. Haven't been able to find anything concrete linking it to him, but the style is right and the boxed flange construction is certainly a Unimark design.

      Beauty! Predates Vignelli by a little bit--this is likely from the late 1940s or 1950s, one of the last pieces to use that unique art deco type face that signs from the 1930s and on were fabricated with. Pristine condition no less!
