17.75" x 14" large plexiglass "R". Vintage, red with red plastic edge, used in the sign industry as a face with neon backlighting.

The story: My dad owned one of the largest sign shops in central New England for a couple of decades from the late 70's through the late 90's. During this time, they manufactured and installed many of these backlit signs, using their own fabricated plexi letters.

He retired and sold the shop, much to my chagrin (I always wanted to follow in his footsteps, so I make shoes instead!). My brother still runs a neon shop in the building, and over time, has taken many of these mid 1980's/1990's signs down and replaced them. He gave me a huge pile of them, and are still replacing those signs for new business all over the state!

So not only are they vintage, they were handmade by a family member (not by ME, though, but both of my brothers and my father made letters), and are ready for recycling into very COOL wall decor. I believe the typestyle is Helvetica, it was very popular back then. They do have scratches, a ding here and there, c'mon, they were outside for 20 or so years!

I have a lot of other letters, with red edging, white edging, and green letters. Convo me!
I'm happy to ship outside the US, but as prices vary, convo me.

10% discount for 3 or more. This will require a custom listing, so convo me!
