Grand Army Of The Republic Sign

Recommended Posts

This was previously posted in the general discussion box, if it looks familiar:

 

I happened to come across a Grand Army of the Republic sign at a flea market in Earl, WI. I don't know if it is an original or not; it looks to be fairly old, but there is not any kind of state highway dept notation on it..as the picture of the sign (with my ugly mug) indicates, it is not square. If anybody has any information on these signs, I would appreciate it...slan go foill, Kip

The sign looks similar to the ones used in California. They are small, though usually black / white only. Older signs had yellow on them as well. Beyond that, I can't really help.

Hello:

 

I have found that the Grand Army of the Republic Highway signs vary, depending on the year and the state chapter. You will not find any state ID's on the back side since they are provide by the individual state chapeters to the various road departments. The basic design has alway remained the same.

 

For pictures of the origional signs you can email me a RussUSRoute6@aol.com
