This antique United States Trust sign reads United States Trust Company of New York, and most likely dates to the early 1900s. It is a very heavy stamped steel sign with deep embossed lettering and border. The bottom line reads – Agent, Assignee, Vendor.
This is a really cool historical artifact from New York. It would make a nice display or collectible piece for someone on Wall Street or in the banking business.
United States Trust Company of New York was founded in 1853 and operated independently until 2000. It was acquired by Charles Schwab, and Co., and subsequently was sold to, and became a subsidiary of Bank of America in 2007. Wikipedia
