I got it, very nice. Haven't seen a sign like this before, it has no "SORRY" but that I have seen bevore, but it has a not bent metal fixture on the back, that is new to me.

Here are the pictures. Older sign for sure.

Thank you. Now I only have to wait about 10 days...patience is not my strongest point but I'll think have to.

No I don't. One is enough for me (as I hope that I will never have more than one phone temporarily out of service here )

The oldest about those signs I found from 1958- with "SORRY":

Noticed something today- my sign does only fit for the old type of coin gauge, not on the later ones. So must be before they changed the design of the coin gauge. Wonder if the newer type of signs fit on bothe type of coin gauges, anybody knows?
