||This 15 ½" x 32" x 1" thick wooden sign appears to have its origins in the 19th Century. The paint is faded and the text difficult to read. The words "Select and hats" gives the appearance that the board had been cut from a larger wood sign and repurposed. About five inches of unpainted, nail-hole riddled wood has been trimmed from each end. The rough ends and the black swath of paint at bottom, center, are further evidence that the piece served another purpose after its life as an advertisement. The piece was recovered from the Kuhn's attic.
