This "Road Closed" cast iron barricade was made by Arcade during the years 1938-41. This barricade is dark red. One has the lettering painted white, the other barricade is all red. It is 4" wide x 1-1/2" tall x 1" deep. It says "Road Closed" and is blank on the other side. It has a 2 foot base. Many of these signs from this time period were part of sets such as #4329 Road Construction Set. I have 2 of these barricades.
This barricade was played with. It has some paint chips. Please look at the pictures.
