Any suggestions on how to enhance the text on the sign this man appears to be holding?
I tried playing with levels, but that did not do much.
My PS skills are very basic.

It's not really text, it's just pixels and they are pretty faded out and sparse. It's curious that he doesn't seem to be holding it either.

Crayon Portrait - Sketch over enlargement from a smaller photo. (c.1890)
Most of the time they are just the head & shoulders. 
When the artist had to do body parts like hands & feet, that challenged many. 
So they often look not right.

I'm enchanted with the photo, @FlexAce. You might enjoy making a copy and trying the new Photo Restoration Neural Filter on it.

Using your sample, I added a Curve adjustment layer with a steep curve at the edge transition, and selected the two point, like so:

Drag the two points around a bit, and you can start to pick up little details, but there's still not much. Looks like it says Charles [something].
