I purchased an Oklahoma Route 66 highway sign a couple of years back when my wife and I were living in Claremore, OK. As a history buff and Route 66 fan I had the intention of mounting it on an interior wall in our home. Of course, my wife didn't see it that way.
Looking at the sign I notice that the quality of the stamping and finish is excellent. It is of heavy gauge steel and the baked enamel finish will last for years, if not decades without fading.
It's also nice to be able to purchase an item of historical significance at such an affordable price. These signs are being manufactured by the same company on the same dies that the originals were made with. Whenever I watch "The Grapes of Wrath" on DVD and see the Oklahoma Route 66 road sign beside the highway as the Joad truck rolls past on their way to California, I know that my sign was made on that same set of dies by the same company using the same manufacturing process which made the highway sign that appears in the film.
This sign would look great on a wall in your living room, den or garage. You could even put it alongside your driveway (if you trust your neighbors).
Most of the originals are gone now; the surviving ones are in collections. The original 1926 dies which are stamping out these fine reproductions won't last forever and will at some point wear out. It's best to purchase one of these signs while they're still available and own an actual piece of American history.
