Can anyone help me read the date and name on this? It's on a 6' Red Crown/Polarine thermometer.

Thanks! It looks like I can see the number "244" in there on the 2nd line. Not sure if that means anything. Any idea?

Also, I know the version of this sign can help narrow the date. Here is a pic of the version.

I believe the 244 is possibly a sign co. code, there were many manufactures of the 6' thermometers,
my 2 are stamped differently .. ... cool
