Hello from Metro Detroit / sign question
« on: November 04, 2020, 09:12:25 AM »

Hello from Detroit! Impressed with the content on this forum, can't believe I hadn't found it years ago!

Growing up in Detroit, I have been interested in the road and rail systems in the city, especially the history. I collect signs from the Detroit area as well.

I recently picked up an older I-75 sign. I was wondering if anyone could put a date on it, or tell me any other info about it? I haven't seen an interstate sign like this in service for years, especially with the "Michigan" label on it.

Thanks in advance -

Looks like a pretty early one, if Iím not mistaken one of the first generation shields given the numbers are kind of small.  You might want to compare it to what is in the shield gallery.

Too bad there's no date sticker on the back, huh?
