This sign is an early one, going by the logo style.  Clinton had a whole boatload of different designs.  If I ever get rich enough, I'll have one of each.  :rolling:

 

Nice catch, Ben. How big is the sign?

 

Its 24'' by 18''.  Its a heavy ol' guy, and two sided.  One side has a flange to maybe mount it to the side of a building.

Thanks for the info, Ben. The biggest Clintons I ever saw were the little 5 or 6 hp engines that Sears would put on their go carts.

I'm not rich enough, Bill.  :D 

 

I'm working up a virtual Old Paths Equipment inventory tour.  I think all of you would enjoy that.  There's a lot of junk there.  Good junk. 

 

A new profile picture? How will we ever know it's you?  :bigrofl:

 

You'll know its me just as soon as I start picking on those who deserve it.

Yes, the plain arrowhead, late 40's early 50's.

That logo is probably my favorite style.  I like this one, though, too:

Early version of that style, later ones had the trademark and a border, Clinton letters were changed slightly also.

 

One of my favs also Ben.
