I, too, have recently acquired something from Jake's store.  I saw a post he made of a 1950s green US Route 46 shield with the JCT banner in the Historic Road Signs page on Facebook.  I was initially bummed because I saw it about a year and a half after he posted it, as someone had added a comment and brought it back up in the feed.  I asked Jake about it, assuming it was long gone, but to my delight, it was available, and we made a trade and money deal to our mutual satisfaction.  Rather than post images directly here, I'll link you to my show-and-tell page:

The nice thing about route shields is that they're mostly the same dimensions, so if you have a big collection you can rotate what's displayed every so often, and reuse the same mounts.

I have most of mine hanging on the wall already :)

New arrival: Replica 1960's AR 540



When I-540 was first built around Ft Smith, it was AR 540 until the road was finished.
