If there's a topic for END signs, then there should also be a topic for BEGINS signs :)

There should be a BEGIN sign over the 168 shield since this is the beginning of the eastern leg of 168. Instead just the BEGIN sign for the scenic route.

If my only contribution to the "END" thread was the end of I-90 East, I feel like I should make my only contribution, from among several dozen possibilities from my collection, to this one the beginning of I-90 East.  Or at least what it looked like way back on July 29, 1999, when I took this one:

In Hawaii, I think there are only two BEGIN signs, both on Kauai (island with the best signage in the entire state).

(http://www.hawaiihighways.com/end56-begin560.jpg)

(http://www.hawaiihighways.com/begin-58-end-51.jpg)

In Alaska, just one set, at the south end of AK 3 (I only photo'd the NB sign, but there's a BEGIN AK 1 along the SB lanes). END signs are not quite as rare, but in keeping with apparent Arctic custom of using them only where they are completely unnecessary (Northwest Territories have a few of those; no END signs at all in the Yukon).

This is one of the only "BEGIN" signs that I know of in Washington. Most beginnings only have standard route markers with cardinal direction tabs. Interestingly, no cardinal direction tab here:

(http://i.imgur.com/lAtaZu5.png)

The opposite carriageway has the opposite assembly (and accompanying "END" and "BEGIN" tabs), but the Hwy 525 shield has been missing for well over five years now. Not sure why the tab was blue and so small, though:

Regarding that 60 km/h sign in the first post, I'm sure I remember seeing speed limit signs in Ontario that had a French plaque reading "DEBUT" (may have had an accent mark) underneath the "BEGINS" sign. I don't have any pictures of that, though. I'm pretty sure it wasn't in Quebec because they would most likely have omitted the English portion, and I haven't been to New Brunswick since 1989 so I know it wasn't there I remember because I was driving when I saw these and I've never driven in New Brunswick.

It's pretty crummy, but I'm not stopping on a four-lane bridge over the Mississippi River in a work zone to get a better shot.

This is a "Begin" sign for IA-163, an expressway from the Mississippi River at Burlington up to Des Moines.

I didn't see any begin or end signs anywhere else (visited a tiny proportion of Tokyo and Kyoto), though they may well exist.

I can only assume that "Origin" is not the legal term for what is actually occurring. I know they put English on their road signs, but it's usually just to help tourists, right? "Origin" must be an "Engrish" translation of our "BEGINS" signs, or an equivalent to Europe's "motorway begins" plaques.

The beginning of I-22 (almost) in Byhalia, Mississippi, just a few miles east of Memphis, Tennessee.  I-22 begins at a junction with I-269, and follows US Hwy 78 through most of Mississippi, and then through Alabama to Birmingham where it ends (for now and the foreseeable future).  When this photo was taken (Nov. 25, 2017), I-269 between I-55 and I-22 was not yet complete or open.  I understand that that link opened on December 8, so we just missed it by a couple of weeks.

Interesting. WSDOT doesn't use the "BEGIN" shield very often. I can't think of any, besides the one at the beginning of the 525 in Lynnwood, and that's missing its shield.

Nonetheless, the BGS backing is probably turning off more than a few people here. Certainly doesn't bother me, though.

Doesn't bother me either, (although I do think it could do without the horizontal line between BEGIN and East) and I think I prefer the green background in situations where one route begins and another ends, as in some of the examples I posted above. That said, it can also be used incorrectly:

MN-15 does end here, but the lanes join US-10 West—obviously US-10 West doesn't start here. It should read "JCT West US-10" instead.

If the local agency is going for more of an actual guide sign (so an LGS), rather than just a guide sign appearance, the line would be unnecessary. But WSDOT frequently uses green backgrounds for reassurance shields (or did, most new signs are just standard black and white unisigns), not to emulate a guide sign I don't believe. Just because they like the consistent (green) look, I guess. And I mean guess. I really have no clue.

That said, it can also be used incorrectly:

That would definitely be a misuse of the "BEGIN" plaque. I could see "END MN-15 / JCT West US-10" as well.

Reassurance shields on a green background seemed to be for the most part a WSDOT thing in the 80's up to the late 90's. I still see them posting a few of this style from time to time, but they have mostly replaced them with the black and white one-piece signs for state routes and US highways, and cutouts for interstates.

As I recall, this SR 531 sign has the old style fabrication sticker that WSDOT used through 1991. 1992 and up, they used a new style sticker with the last two digits of the year very large. Since SR 531 was created in 1992, and this sign has the old style sticker, I would venture to guess that this sign was posted circa 1991.

Similarly, at US 212's east end they have "END 212/BEGIN MN 62" even though that's not the beginning of MN 62.

They did do it properly at the new MN 610 west terminus - "END 610/JCT WEST I-94".

Unusual BEGIN sign for Poweshiek CR F62, where it branches off from Iowa 146. This section of county road used to be Iowa 225 until 2003, which is perhaps why there's a BEGIN sign here. (Or might be because, to stay on NB Iowa 146, you have to angle right. Staying straight goes onto this county road.)

All US routes in Tennessee have a hidden state route designation. Interstates, however, do not. This is a relatively-new assembly where I-26 ends, but the freeway continues as US 23. Previously, there was only an "End I-26" sign here.

NDOT has installed the rural "enhanced mileposts" on Franktown Road in Washoe Valley.  The south end gets the deluxe treatment, with an enhanced milepost zero at the start and the shield and banners a few yards on up the road.

The north end, not being at a whole mile, settles for a standard milepost.

Gonna revive this thread with a BEGIN sign for a signed byway: Lake Country Scenic Byway in Walker. It's also the beginning of MN-34, but no banner for that.

Begins signs are very uncommon in Illinois, but here's one at the south end of IL-83 near Dyer, Indiana.

They're not common in Iowa, either (this is the third one I know of!) This is the current southern terminus of Iowa 191 at I-680. The route formerly ran southwest all the way to Council Bluffs.
