The word HERPICIDE according to my friend Don Fadely is from the latin words “Herpes” (meaning to creep) & “Cide” meaning death! Mr. Dupont M. Newbrow called his secret concoction NEWBROS HERPICIDE which reputedly Killed the Dandruff Germ. Them pesky little critters are still running amuck for sure. This sign dates about 1904 with the humorous figures being part of the original trademark. Metal sign looks exactly like original.

Each tin sign is designed and made in the United States using 24 gauge American steel and a process known as sublimation, where the image is baked into a powder coating for a durable and long lasting finish. A vintaging process is then performed by hand to give these signs an aged look and feel. Each sign is drilled and riveted for easy hanging. All you need is 2 nails and a hammer!

Based on actual barber shop and shoeshine imagery.
