Sometimes you need a thick skin around here. Some like to shoot from the hip and some like to a** off, but the vast majority are quite nice and helpful.
Thanks for posting the sign. I had only seen one other (not for sale) in the 25 years or so that I've been noticing and collecting and it was in the Charlotte NC area. I'd be willing to bet the sign is meant to depict Grant and Lee reconciling. As far as being on a trailer-well, like you said, the photo documents that and I have seen many other trucking companies (even into the 70's and probably early 80's) that attached signs onto their trailers here in the South.
Welcome to Old Gas.
I will concede the point that there is no way to absolutely determine whether the sign on the truck is a decal or metal sign.
