Hey,

They one side pictured has a few holes. The other side is as rough as you can think. Anyone have any information on the company itself or the age of this sign? Also how much is it worth?

Alec,

SS was a marketing group started by Derby, kanotex, Vickers and a few other companies in the Midwest. The SS shield kind of held the station to higher standard(like AAA). Most stations would have both the Brand, like Derby, along with the SS shield signs at the station but I have seen a few pics of stations that only had SS signs. Hope this helps. It appears that you have the smaller of the two shield signs.
