This is probably a long shot, but I am looking for a US-51 highway sign.

I want one shaped like a shield, like the ones pictured. I would settle for a modern one, but prefer an old one. I don't care if it has a state on it or not.

Us-51 starts in Wisconsin, near the Ironwood, Michigan Upper Peninsula border and ends in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Thanks,
Steve

Those were being made just like the original. I bought one years ago. I'll see if I can find the info. Dave

Thanks Dave. I also got a nice PM regarding one from a member, so thank you all for the help. I am still looking for any leads though. Obviously I prefer an old one, but any will do.

Hi Steve,

There's an antique store in Norway, MI (in the U.P.) that sold me some local highway sheilds last year, may still have some if you can track them down. They had maybe a dozen of them, I dont remember what numbers, some were embossed, some not. There's only three antique stores in Norway, its not the quilt one, one of the other two, sure you could call and check. They knew what they had, weren't super cheap or anything otherwise I would have bought them all. I was looking for certain highways too.

- Paul

Hey, Thanks Paul. I was actually in that Norway antique store last summer!! (Not the quilt one - LOL). Thanks for the lead. I have a few other leads thanks to the great people on this site.

Thanks again and have a Happy New Year,
Steve
