This got too close to a wood stove where it hung. Some of the brown heat marks were able to be removed by the prior owner using a rubbing compound as you can clearly see on the photos - I have not tried to clean it any further. As you can see it is dated 3-49 on the bottom. This is a hard to find old metal sign.
