Retired MUTCD signs.

Specifically, any sign that has been completely deleted from the manual. Excludes text-to-pictogram changes and word changes, i.e. "Road Construction" to "Road Work".

The 2003 MUTCD had a bunch of special metric signs that were deleted in the 2009 MUTCD.

* The symbolic narrow bridge sign.
* The no turn on red signs similar to more standard symbolic no right/left turn signs.  Missouri still uses them though (example.
* The 'roundabout diagram' warning sign.  A couple newer ones have been installed in Missouri since their retirement/replacement in the MUTCD.
* The 'T-intersection' arrow plaque (post retirement example) and the version of the ahead and to the right arrow plaque with a stem continuing below the side arrow (post retirement example).
* The symbolic pavement ends sign.

The "MILE YY  EXIT XX" exit tabs.
Diagrammatic guide signs for cloverleaf interchanges.

Both introduced in the 1971 MUTCD, and deleted from the 1978 MUTCD.
