It is not perfect but in fairly good condition for its age but please see photos Charter section is imperfect could use a good deep clean and rework. The turning knob is not present and you could find a replacement. It does advance manually with the lid off. The John Deere plant came to Dubuque in 1945 and this is a hand roller style not electric so It would date the sign to the late 1940’s to early 1950’s. This sign would have been mounted in an early bus and the driver would hand roll the sign to the next destination. It could be Fremont Avenue or The John Deere Plant! This sign measures about 29″ long by about 9″ tall and about 5 and 1/2 at widest point on the mounting base. This is a great piece of history and would look good hanging up anywhere and you can change what is displayed on the sign depending on your tastes!
