    This sign is about 2 foot by 2 foot and made from a heavy gauge steel. Perhaps as thick as a quarter.
    The only holes in it for mounting are near the base. Two on each side. Now along with this and the fact that it is double sided leads me to believe it would have been mounted on top of the cab of a Pepsi delivery truck. This is a theory by me. Possibly could have been on top of a vending machine but that seems unlikely.
    The Pepsi cap logo is from the 1950s. This is when the color blue was added. It was red and white before that. The word "cola" was dropped in 1962 and it became Pepsi. Don't see "Take Home a Carton" as one of their official slogans. It was used on several signs.
    It is now happily living with my other signs. It seems to be doing OK.

      I *always* enjoy it when someone posts a PEPSI COLA item here -- Coke stuff is fun too but so much more plentiful it seems, plus I've personally been a PEPSI drinker for decades now instead... <LOL>

      GREAT SIGN fort -- it looks great with your other collectables on the wall!! :-) :-) :-)

      My favorite drink also if iced tea is unavailable.

      Thank you very much AO. I like the different makes myself but I buy Coke stuff too at the right price.

      Thank you very much Watchsearcher. Mtn Dew is my drink after iced tea.

      Drink Pepsi if you must drink soda,( sorry, I considered the stuff battery acid on my kids teeth, but yes, they got to drink it occasionally) I have no respect for the Coke Co. anymore...Wonderful old sign! Glad you rescued it from any more damage, and put it alongside your other nostalgic signage....

      Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. I'll drink any of them as long as they have caffeine. It is quite happy with the other signs.
