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
