That stencil font looks familiar. Looks like the same kind of stenciling seen on the famous "Welcome To Kalawao County: Go Away" signs...

it's a commonly available stencil font.  It's also on the back of Florida markers, CA auto club signs, military equipment...

I suspect that all routes in Hawaii, before statehood, were signed as territorial routes.

I suspect that all routes in Hawaii, before statehood, were signed as territorial routes.

As discussed upthread (and also in other recent threads), they weren't signed with route numbers at all, except (1) a temporary wartime route number system adopted just before World War II, which was used only on Oahu island (which had most of the military bases) and went into disuse after the war; and (2) something the current route numbering system, which used teardrop-shaped markers similar to those used now (though in cutout format, and also with the territory/state name that is mostly absent from modern markers), adopted just before statehood.  http://www.hawaiihighways.com/FAQs-page3.htm
