Tin Sign "White House Coffee"

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

No matter what party affiliation you have this would be a great piece to hang in your kitchen, or any other room in your home. Technically this sign is what is referred to as "tin over cardboard" or TOC to the pros. While the sign is indeed tin, it does have a cardboard backing for stability. Just another example of tin advertising. We have a shop full of tin advertising signs and trays, and of course we do collect ourselves. We don't care much for the paper advertising pieces, and tin is much more desirable. We also correctly value condition greatly, as it should be. This rare sign is a worthy example of the highly sought after subject, coffee.
