I bought this off a collector, liked the look, design. Early sign - 1900s(?), with some bullets in the sign.

    How neat. I just saw a segment of American Picker the other evening and they were so excited to come across a Whippet sign as they are rare. I believe they said they only made vehicles for 5 years before the Depression and that was their undoing. Very nice indeed.

    From wiki-pedia,In 1926, production of the Overland ended and was replaced by the Whippet brand of small cars. Following the stock-market crash of 1929 and the economic depression that soon followed, a number of Willys automotive brands began to falter. Stearns-Knight was liquidated in 1929. Whippet production ended in 1931, its models replaced by the Willys Six and Eight. Production of the Willys-Knight ended in 1933.
    So I'd say it was a very rare sign and you can date it to 1926-1931 with out a doubt .
