Historical Notes : Hard to find 1930s Coca-cola cast iron Original Bases. This is the correct base for the 1930s and 1940s Porcelain Policeman or 2 sided Lollypop curb sign. Base was sandblasted and painted with Correct Coca Cola Paint Colors in March,2012. This can be used with many signs including policeman sign and Vendo coin changer. Pipe cut off at set screw hole height. Base is 22 inches in diameter. The Policeman top Sign would be as follows ; M520B Coca Cola with Policeman School Zone Sign. A circa 1950's policeman is demanding you to "Slow Down" for a School Zone! Policeman stands 63" High,and would be 30" wide from the outside edges and the cast iron base is 22" Diameter. The sign would be marked "A-M 1". The Policeman signs were given to schools for safer crosswalks before crossing guards were the standard.
