Old hand held Stop? sign. This old sign is so worn that whatever it originally said is gone. I did a bit of research and I believe it most likely said STOP. The sign has remnants of black around the edge and off white as the background throughout. The sign shows wear and marks throughout. Someone has used one side as a tally board as there are numbers and equations in pencil all over it. There is one tiny pin hole in the metal (perhaps pierced by the tip of a nail?). The handle has one small surface crack in the wood near the top on one side. It is still good and solid. The round metal part measures 16 1/8-16 1/4" in diameter. The wooden handle is approx. 6" long. Please pm me for additional pictures.
