US HIGHWAY SIGNS

Embossed US shield in excellent condition. Note the very narrow fonts used to cram "SOUTH DAKOTA" into the crown section of the sign. Other states simply abbreviated the state name. (Collection of Robert Edgar)

STATE HIGHWAY SIGNS

Current South Dakota state route sign using high intensity "honeycomb" sheeting. This sign is dated January 1979. (My collection)

Signs marking routes around Mt. Rushmore and Black Hills in the 1970's were this special type featuring the "four heads". This style is no longer used. (Collection of Andrew Osborne)

Older style state route marker used from the 1940's - 60's. This is the older embossed non-reflective style. Signs preceding this style used the numbers inside of an outline of the state. South Dakota has come full-circle in its route marker designs. (Collection of Robert Edgar)
