THIS AUCTION IS FOR A VINTAGE 7-UP MENU BOARD AND HUNDREDS OF LETTERS AND NUMBERS.

THIS VERY UNIQUE 7-UP MENU BOARD MEASURES ABOUT 25 1/2" HIGH, BY 20 1/4" X 4 1/4", AND WORKS PERFECTLY. IT IS LIT WITH A FLORESCENT TUBE IN THE MIDDLE, LIGHTS THE TOP AND BOTTOM LETTER BOARDS VERY NICELY AND MAKES IT VERY EASY TO READ. T IS A CRACK IN THE BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER (SEE PICTURE 4), BUT IT HAS NO EFFECT ON THE WORKING CONDITION OF THIS SIGN, AND I'M SURE HAS BEEN T FOR MANY YEARS.

THE 2 GREEN BACKGROUNDS SLIP IN AND OUT TO MAKE IT EASY TO CHANGE THE LETTERS AND NUMBERS, HOWEVER T ARE 4 LITTLE GREEN TABS THAT EXTEND OUT AND SLIP INTO THE SLOTS ON THE BOARD, AND A COUPLE OF THEM HAVE BEEN BROKEN OFF, AND IF THE BOARD IS TIPPED FOWARD THE GREEN BACKBOARD WILL FALL OUT. THEY WILL STAY PUT UNLESS YOU TILT IT FOWARD. YOU COULD USE A PIECE OF SCOTCH TAPE TO EXTEND THE TABS, AND IT WOULD WORK FINE TO MAKE A QUICK EASY REPAIR.

IT IS ALSO MISSING THE 7-UP LOGO IN THE CENTER BETWEEN THE 2 THICK GREEN BARS, AND IT DOES HAVE A FEW SCRATCHES TOO, BUT IT WORKS FINE AND DEFINETELY WILL DO THE JOB EITHER AS A NEAT OLD MENU BOARD FOR DISPLAY, OR USED ON A DAILY BASIS. THIS BEAUTY HAS 2 HOLES IN THE BACK FOR SUITABLE HANGING WITH A PULL STRING TO TURN IT ON AND OFF, AND THE BACK HAS A STICKER THAT SAYS IT IS MADE BY THE EVERBRITE ELECTRIC SIGNS INC. OF MILWAUKEE, WI. FOR THE 7-UP COMPANY OF ST. LOUIS, MO. IT ALSO HAS THE UNION STICKER, AND THE UNDERWRITER LABORATORIES STICKER.

THIS AUCTION ALSO FEATURES HUNDREDS OF NUMBERS AND LETTERS FOR THIS BOARD. THEY ARE SHOWN IN A BLUE PLASTIC DRAWERED NUT AND BOLT SEPARATOR BIN, BUT IF YOU ARE THE WINNING BIDDER, YOU CAN HAVE THE SEPARATOR BIN OR NOT SHIPPED TO YOU. I COULD SEPARATE ALL THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS IN BAGGIES AND SENT IT THIS WAY MAKING IT EASIER AND LESS EXPENSIVE TO SHIP,BUT IF YOU WANT THE BIN WITH THE AUCTION THEN IT NATURALLY WILL BE MORE MONEY TO SHIP IT.

THE WINNING BIDDER CAN LET ME KNOW, AND IF YOU WANT A SHIPPING PRICE BEFORE YOU BID, PLEASE SPECIFY IF YOU WANT THE BIN OR NOT, ALONG WITH YOUR ZIP CODE.

THE NUMBERS AND LETTERS ARE ALL 1 INCH HIGH, BUT T ARE A FEW THAT ARE A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE OTHERS, AND A FEW OF THE LETTERS LOOK A LITTLE YELLOW FROM AGE, BUT MOST OF THEM ARE FINE AND ALL OF THEM COULD BE USED FOR YOUR MESSAGES. JUST TO GIVE YOU A QUICK RUN DOWN ON HOW MANY PIECES COME WITH THIS I'LL GIVE YOU A FEW RANDOM COUNTS ON SOME NUMBERS AND LETTERS. THEIR ARE 51-S'S, 97-O'S, 65-A'S, 15-Z'S, 26-2'S, 26'$'S, AND 55-5'S, AND THE OTHERS ALL HAVE MANY OF EACH TOO, BUT I JUST PICKED A FEW TO LET YOU KNOW ROUGHLY WHAT TO EXPECT.

THIS WONDERFUL OLD TIME MENU BOARD WOULD STILL DO A GREAT JOB IN A BAR, RESTURANT, QUICK SHOP, OR WOULD LOOK GREAT AT HOME IN THE GAME ROOM, FAMILY ROOM, GARAGE OR THE OFFICE LUNCH ROOM, AND IT HAS A GREAT STARTING PRICE WITH NO RESERVE.

REMEMBER TO INCLUDE YOUR ZIP CODE, AND IF YOU WANT THE PLASTIC BIN IN YOUR REQUEST FOR A SHIPPING PRICE THRU FEDEX.

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING.
