Quote from: Butch Harlow on September 23, 2018, 05:24:49 PMMy thought exactly. It looks like it was made to be a clock, but never made it through production. It has one tiny hole at the 12 to hang it on the wall. It's a curious piece.
Quote from: Butch Harlow on September 23, 2018, 05:48:43 PMI just need to find a 14" diameter clock to put it in. I just hate the thought of drilling a hole in it, but I guess that was the original intent.

Quote from: Butch Harlow on September 23, 2018, 03:37:30 PMI found and purchased an interesting sign today. Its 14" in diameter made of aluminum and not cut by a machine. It seems it was cut out by hand so the edge is not perfectly smooth. The story I have on it is that it was purchased in a lot of other telephone items from a bell system employee. Other than that I have nothing. Its definitely painted and not vinyl transfer. It's in really good shape, so I assume it is repro of some kind, but for 20 dollars I couldn't pass it up. It is white on the backside with no markings of any kind. Any info on it would be appreciated.
