    Ok, so what's the big deal? Well, for me it's this sign. It's made by the Griswold Signal Co. out of Minneapolis. Probably back from the 1940's. It's special to me because it will mount on my Griswold Railroad Crossing Signal. The porcelain is nearly perfect and the marbles are in great shape. I'll take it apart and sandblast and repaint the back this spring. A good buff & polish on the procelain and it'll be ready for show.
