Very early metal die cut School Crossing Guard Sign. Not sure of date...but believe to be from the 1920's. Colorful (red, yellow, black and white). Measures 57 inches tall and about 17.5 inches wide. Has 8 holes for screwing to a stand up pole. (2 in head, 2 at top of lettering square that says "School Crossing", 2 at bottom of School Crossing Square and two in the boots at the bottom. Each pair of screw holes are 3 inches apart. Condition (in our opinion) is about an 8 - 8.5 with some rusting, looks like a repainting of the white strap across chest, apparent paint scrape across the face, but displays very nicely. Great unique old conversation piece that will catch everyone's attention.

Not Coca Cola...but standup guard like Coke Guard. Made of steel plate plating not tin - No Advertising Adv. Ad. Looks like Phillip Morris Bell Captain or World War I 1 cadet with jodphers and military like cap and black knee high boots that are laced at the shoe portion...but are like military spats or puttees or leather or patent gaiters Looks like the old Junior Jr. Police badge or breast strap that the Kiwanis Club (s) sponsored in elementary schools - when students wearing the Kiwanis badge would help other students cross the street.
