    CokeKid's recent sweet signage posts got me looking at this 19.5" round tin embossed and lithograph print example by maker American Art Works, circa 1938. Brought it home for a little less than half book price through an eBay bid auction.

    Like CK's 20 x 28, it has no holes for hanging. These are referred to as tacker signs, end user would have just driven nails into it to hang. Never happened with this one.

    There are tape marks on the back and impact damage where it no doubt fell when the tape gave way, at some point previously. I have it literally tacked up to the wall at the end of the buffet.

    These are hard signs to find at a decent price. Despite a little bit of damage, glad to have one in my collection.

    Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. August is just around the corner... time flies.

      So nice! Thanks for the honourable mention DN. The information on "tacker" signage is very much appreciated. Great post, as usual.

      Hey Dave, you scored a good one there! I still have mine from 1933, I don't think I'll give it up!

      I think you need more COKE signs....After all COKE and Harley Davidson are the #1 selling signs
