Notes Sign shows signs of wear. There are two holes punctured on the sign, one on top and one near the bottom. There is a tear on the top edge in the center and another larger tear on the right edge near the bottom corner. There are also two small tears on the bottom edge. There are four fold marks, one on the left bottom corner, one on the center near the lower edge, and two on the right lower side. The sign also has a large black smudge spot on the right, four brown water spots on the white background as well as on the top edge and all along the left and bottom edges. Other small dirt smudges are also seen. The back of the sign is dirty, has many spots as well as water stains, and a large discolored rectangular spot on top that looks like it was left by a tape being removed.
