Baldwin locomotives works round sign number seven

Post by tech125 » Sat May 22, 2010 3:17 am

Hello,

I recently found at an estate sale a round wood sign "Baldwin locomotive works, pensylvania with a 7 in the middle, philadelphia u.s.a"

Any information about the age or history of this item would be very much appreciated.Were train signs back then typically in metal or wood?
Black background with brown/gold lettering.......


Thank You

First of all in order to be authentic such a number plate would be made of either cast iron or brass This if it is wood is a reproduction number plate these are sometimes sold in railroad museums or model railroad stores and can be found online, you might try the railroadiana.org website as they cover fake builders and number plates on their site
