I had it in the number game, but I'll post it since it's very unique.

why no - it certainly isn't the very first photo on the Michigan page of the shield gallery or anything.

That's at 15th St NW.  I have a photo of that same sign (but from the opposite corner, and from my bike).

I should point out that a few of those "unisigns" along Constitution Ave have been replaced with "regular" US 50 shields...17th St NW comes to mind.

The sign on the left is older than the others, but has since been replaced.

Then there's this one from Louisiana

Sorry for the quality: it's an old Polaroid.
