Embossed Tin Signs

Embossed tin signs are closely related to self-framed tin signs with the exception that they were typically produced for outdoor applications.  Embossed tin signs were usually nailed (around the sign's perimeter) to the exterior walls of buildings and therefore typically show evidence of nail holes and weathering.  Due to this fact, many collectors have framed these exterior signs with matting to cover the nail holes.
 
Brass-colored embossed signs were for interior display and in many instances were accompanied with a beveled glass insert over the top of the sign and held into place at the perimeter edging.
