STATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

Current style North Carolina state marker. The signs have always been diamond shaped. (Photo from Joe Koehler)

Older sign from the 1950's to the early 70's. Signs from this and all previous eras are cutout diamonds with the fancy 'NC'. A quick side note, this 'NC' insignia first appeared on NC license plates expiring June 1917. (Photo from Mike Summa)
