Maybe some other country? I don't know of any others that use the word "Interstate", but there might be one.

Looks like cheap junk made by someone who doesn't know any better.

^ From the looks of it, I doubt that many (if any) of the 56,000 signs this eBay seller is offering have actually been made. The seller probably just uploaded a whole catalog of designs as item listings, and if someone happens to buy one, it will be produced individually and shipped to the buyer.

On a warning sign.  Warning you it is not real?

That's worse than those bogus 66 signs that pop up "This looks so real it fooled the experts"

Perhaps we should have a Dallas road meet & go to their production facility and pay them a visit.  :sombrero:

The description includes the phrase "novelty sign".  That says it all.

True. He's obviously not aiming for "true" road enthusiasts

That has to be the worst Interstate sign I've ever seen! It's not even the right shield  :banghead:

I was expecting the listing to be for the entire (nonexistent) road rather than a shield.
