    Found this metal stop sign over the christmas holidays. Not sure how old it is. Needs a good cleaning.

      Embossed. That is a nice one.

      I'd guess 1930's/40's, offhand. By then the red/white color scheme had become mostly 'standard' -- before that STOP signs were often yellow, and/or included other words (CROSS STREET, THRU STREET, etc) or "motor club" insignias as well, sometimes with "catseye" reflectors of some sort incorporated. After WWII, aluminum (usually not embossed) became the material of choice for road signs.

      NICE SIGN -- clean it "gently", please! :-)
