Extremely rare NYC Subway porcelain sign manhattan railroad :
$695

Up for sale is a very rare version of the IRT sign that foroffers crossing the tracks.What makes this sign so rare was that the "wood block" font was not legible at far distances, which prompted a quick removal after they were introduced, and thus few survived. The replacement was a sign with a similar layout and dimensions but using sans serif block font. See the last photo at the NYC transit museum for the newer style.
The date code on the backside of this speciman (also rare) was marked at the factory on 2-12 making it 108 years old.The size is approx 27 x 14 and has not been cleaned. Personally, I wouldn't think of cleaning itbut that's up to the new owner.
These don't come up often. Guaranteed to be old and original. It has everything going for it...rarity, IRT marked, maker's mark, and date marked, great condition and not messed with.
Please use the pictures as part of the description.
