Railroad Fairbanks Morse Scales 
Size 17" by 20"
Condition Good

This Passumpsic Telephone & Telegraph Double Sided Porcelain Sign - measures 17" by 20" by 1 3/4" lip. This is an unusual Vermont sign. The Passumpsic Company was obviously affiliated with New England Telephone and Telegraph. It clearly says "Pay Station" across the top. It probably hung on a railroad depot in Northern Vermont. It was made by Baltimore Enamel & Novelty Company. The 1 3/4" lip for mounting has 5 original offset holes for mounting. One side has fewer dings than the other. It still displays very well. Basically Good condition for it's scarcity.
