Determining the Age of a Vintage Marlboro Cigarette Sign

Category Miscellaneous

Does anyone know anything about this sign? It is approx 30 inches high x 42 inches wide. Most of the vintage ones I have seen are red. Anybody know how old this might be? Thanks for your help.

It's probably from the late fifties or early sixties. It looks as though it's been exposed to weather, and the red paint has faded. The paints used in commercial signage changed in the early sixties to a paint formula that doesn't fade under weather so I'm guessing yours is from the period before the formula change.
