Sure. If oriented properly, it may be fine for years in the hive you set up from the removal. Nothing wrong with it.

Oooh, love the sign board idea, going to combine it with the other thing I do.  You know how sometimes you have a beautiful piece of brood comb that will fit perfectly in a frame if you leave some honey comb with it?  I always bring a big rubbermaid tote with me and the rack out of an old refrigerator.  I duck tape the rack to the tote (otherwise it tends to scoot around, especially once slick with honey)  and lay the comb on that while cutting and putting it in the frame, it reduces the comb piece getting all smeared with honey.  Since we aren't all as good at casually cutting and popping it perfectly into frames like JP is :-D
