I thought there was an old thread featuring cut down signs, broken lenses, re-purposed items, etc. but I can't locate it. Post pictures of anything in your collection or you have seen.
This Socony sign was cut down back in the day and used for backing in a picture frame.

This was a very nice Shell globe I bought years ago and this was what we found when we opened the box

This thread has a few cut, bent and mutilated signs in it.

I like my wheelbarrow example.

Found this inside my Clear vision 203 covering the back access hole. Pleasant surprise to say the least.

This thread is like a car crash. I don't want to look, but I can't stop myself
