Sovereign Service was a marketing group started by Derby, Kanotex, Vickers and a few other companies in the Midwest. The SS shield held the station to higher standard of quality (like AAA). Most stations would have both the Brand, like Derby, along with the SS shield signs at the station while a select few only had the Sovereign Service Sign. I believe this sign was from one of the few exclusive Sovereign gas stations, because most of the classifier signs stated "Sovereign Quality", whilst this sign says "Sovereign Service". It is a classic, rare piece of Americana.
This is a double sided pre-1960 painted tin sign, this fan has dealt with it's fair share of turmoils, as you can tell from the photos. One of the two sides is not salvageable, but the better side is in good condition aside from the the bullet holes and the rusting areas. Would make a great sign for display in the garage or or n your Petroliana collection. Add the special "Sovereign Service" quality to your collection!
