Plaque michelin Rots N13
A perfect reproduction of the Michelin “Plaque de murale” from June 20th. 1966. The edges made out of cement and the very exact reproduction of the original font give this sign its authentic look.
In 1811, Napoleon Bonaparte gave order to construct the Route Impériale 14 from Paris to Cherbourg. In 1824 this road turned into today’s N13.
Because of the construction of the parallel highways A13 and A14, the importance of the N13 shrinned at many places. That’s why parts of the road were handed over to the departments.
This “plaque” is still located at the D613 in Bretteville-l’Orgueilleuse (Calvados) and shows the way to Rots.
The small village of Rots was taken over on June 11th 1944, after heavy fighting between the 25nd SS-Panzergrenadier Regiment and the Canadian Royal Marine Commando No. 46.
Watch the original in the category On demand /Panneaux Michelin Calvados.
This sign comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number and a luxury postcard with picture and description of the original.
