My favorite signs to collect are old route shields, guidepost signs, markers, and so forth from in and around New Jersey. I also like regulation signs like STOP or KEEP RIGHT that are antiquated or in some way unusual or particular to a NJ locality. I have (so far) resisted the urge to go down the “get signs from all 50 states” rabbit hole.
Although I do not have a large collection, I am fortunate to have a decent variety of vintage New Jersey sign types, including cast aluminum and iron, embossed porcelain, and cut out sheet metal. I have at least one route shield from New Jersey at the US, State, and County level.
