This trade sign by Fairbanks Morse features carved font and artwork advertising for the weight scale that Fairbanks Morse built their empire upon. The Fairbanks Morse company was founded in 1823 and would go on to produce the first commercially available weight scale used worldwide even today. They would later expand and create the first commercially available gas engine in the 1890s. Leading the way for pump and engine systems, Fairbanks Morse would go on to create engines used in submarines and trains that set America apart as the nation grew.

This sign is believed to originate from just prior to the Fairbanks Morse merger with Penn-Texas in 1958. During WW2, less metals were used to fabricate new signs and as a result this particular sign was carved from styrofoam or another similar material. The paint is in excellent condition. This sign appears to have no noteworthy damage or wear.

This sign has a 14" diameter.
