Looking for assistance. I just found this metal double sided sign today. Do I take off the dirt or leave it on? If you say take it off, what would be the best/ recommended method without further damage?
I was detecting a friends lot. His grandfather had a Drive In that was built in 1950 right next door so I figure it’s from there.
I'm excited with my best find yet and I don’t want to screw it up.
Thanks in advance.
Sandy

Cleaned with Whink. I’ll put some wax on it and call it a day. Thanks again for your help
