If memory serves me correctly I think it says Socony-Vacuum Products or something along that line.....I know I've seen the top of the sign posted here on OG before, the shield with the metal scroll-work. I wish I would copy pics sometimes for reference!

Darin you saying someone posted an actual sign or a picture? Must be awfully rare.

This is a shield that was used by Socony. I have the sign, but not the bracket The sign measures 10-3/4" x 10-1/2" at it widest points.
