I give this ten thousand thumbs up.  And yes, I'm old enough to remember when button copy was everywhere.

You really don't need to be that old to remember when button copy was everywhere. NYSDOT started their mass replacements in the mid-late 90s, so I remember quite a bit of NY button copy, and Ohio was installing it until the early 2000s. I lived in OH 2003-07 and they were installing (lit) button copy the first year or so I was there.

MA stopped installing it and then, when I was a teenager in the late 1980s/early 1990s, started installing some again on I-91, particularly around West Springfield.

Actually, MassDPW stopped doing button-copy signage en masse by the early 70s.  There was a brief revival in the mid-80s; mainly the signage along the Southeast Expressway portion of I-93 when it was reconstructed circa 1984-85.  For the early 90s, only the I-shields on signs were button-copy.

Mass. Pike (I-90) signage, via the Mass. Turnpike Authority, used button-copy through the 90s.

For the early 90s, only the I-shields on signs were button-copy.

Do they re-use those button copy shields on new signage? Or did DPW and/or MassHighway just have a lot of shields manufactured, with plenty of backstock?

Much of the interstate signage looks remarkably "new" for 15-20 year old signs, while the button copy shields still look pretty good...

Ehh, I wouldn't say button copy was everywhere that recently. I grew up in Minnesota and never saw it there.
