I am trying to figure out what the background might be on this stop sign. It came from my grandfather's estate. He did work for the Wabash railroad, and I have other railroad stuff from his estate (if that helps). From looking at it, it is on a swing type bracket, it is two pieces of metal put together (double sided), and even has a rubber "stopper" on one side. I am assuming that the stopper was used to keep it from hitting something when the sign was swung in one direction. The letters are also embossed in the metal (sign is all metal). I have looked all over the internet but could not find any stop sign with this type of shape. Any thoughts or information would be greatly appreciated.
