FRESH EGGS PAPER POSTER SIGN

Grade A Large

J. Fachinger, Lanesville, Ind.

Notice the "Date Candled" section. Prior to electricity, eggs were held to candle light for inspection. Since the eggshell is transparent, the light from the candle underneath the egg would let you see if a biddy was growing inside. Prior to selling your eggs and by law, you had to post the date when inspected. The "Date Candled" section is where the date would have been written. These were used almost daily by farmers who sold their eggs by the roadside. They look great framed and would look even better hanging in your country home. They make a great conversation piece! As you can see in the photo, there is slight toning to the outer edge due to age, although this just gives it even more character.

"NOS" is a term used by sellers and collectors. "NOS" or "New Old Stock" means an item is old, vintage from the period described, that has never been used. Generally items like this are found in old closed down stores or buildings where the item has been sitting on a shelf for years until being rediscovered, hence the term NOS / New Old Stock.

Guaranteed Old and Original
