I had never heard of this brand and I have been working on mowers for 30 plus years. Root company closed in the early 60’s I think. Sign is 30 inches by 24 inches. Was on the wall of an old oliver tractor shop. Some rust, some paint smeared on it from painting the building. Not going to try to remove it. I could find no other example of it. Pictures tell the story. A little dent here or there. Metal is pretty thick. Paint is a little yellowed on the white and the rest has a few thin spots but then it is probably over 60 years old.
