I took the time to count these out and came up with right at 500. Then culled a few more out and found some good ones on the ground and elsewhere so between 475 and 500.
Photos show what the lot will be: some are more tan than white and some are lilly white. The photo that shows a few in the bottom of the box is what you should expect them to look like. Anything with rust on the good side was pulled. Rust on the back side I left. I also pulled any missing paint, any that were bent and any that were too dark.
The tan ones do not lighten up much when cleaned. They will if scrubbed but then the black is removed also. Included is one box with lid and two hanging grids for storing. The box is about the size of a small shoebox so it should be easy to find one for the extra grid.I can't really say whether there are more of letters than numbers or symbols. The panels will be unsorted and loose in a plastic bag. The item "Lot 500+ Vintage UNITYPE 1 1/4 Letters Numbers Punctuation hanging metal sign" is in sale since Thursday, June 10, 2021.
