Dixon, Sacramento, Vacaville, San Francisco highway sign. Up for sale today is this Dixon, Sacramento, Vacaville, San Francisco sign, as would have appeared on the Lincoln Highway long ago. The sign is made to the 1919 specification of the California State Auto Association, with the logo at the bottom (as well as the association name at the sides) and with sharp corners. Later generations changed to rounded corners for safety, in case an unexpected kinetic event caused the darn thing to come flying through the windshield.

This is a high quality, heavy steel remake that has the same high gloss and is indistinguishable from the original early 1910s porcelain sign.

No cheap tin to be found here, with the wrong fonts, layouts, size, shape, or any other manner of embarrassing imperfection. This one will make even the most discerning collector stick their nose into the sign, as it looks that good from that close! I can of course make these signs with any city names of your choice, and not just this style, even the classic US and state route markers, and the mileage and direction guide signs, from the era. Anything you would like, made with unsurpassed quality right here in the good old US of A. Figure about 5 lb. The watermark and bear logo in the design preview will not appear on the actual sign.

Interstate 8, Beaches guide sign. Up for sale today is this California freeway guide sign for Interstate 8 toward unspecified Beaches. Made to the exact 1959 state standards, as used until the 2000s by the state of California on its freeways. This is an exact replica of one posted above the westbound lanes of I-8 at its interchange with I-5. The original is an exceptionally old porcelain enamel sign that has never been retrofitted with reflective buttons, which is quite the rare find! An original of these is not only very rare to find scrapped, but is a herculean effort to transport; many still enjoy their active service on the highways. The original of this sign is also seventeen and a half feet wide, so we’ve scaled it down for more wieldy display. Here is your chance to own an excellent display piece, without chancing legal trouble… The sign is flat printed on steel, with completely accurate layout and fonts. It weighs about 6 lb. And is 21 by 12 inches. If you would like a different size, please do not hesitate to inquire. This is a high quality, heavy steel, non-reflective sign – perfect for indoor or outdoor display.

This sign is taken from the freeway’s interchange with the San Bernardino, Santa Ana, and Harbor freeways. Made to the exact 1958 state standards, as used by the state of California on its early freeways. They were clearly still figuring things out… Note the black background! An original of these is very difficult to find; it is very unlikely to have survived very long after its replacement. Not only that, but if it did, it would be a herculean effort to transport; the original of this sign is also twenty feet wide, so we’ve scaled it down for more wieldy display.
