The N 803 was the road connecting Barneville and Carentan, now known as D 903. A photo of the original sign was taken on June 8, 1944, when Carentan was liberated. Vinsign has produced an exact replica of the sign, with the same color, font, and size as the original. The handmade reproduction is nearly indistinguishable from the metal original and comes with a certificate, a production number, and a postcard with a photo and description of the original sign.
The Route Nationale N 803, formerly the route from Barneville to Carentan, now known as the D 903, is an iconic symbol of French history. On June 8, 1944, the day Carentan was liberated, a photograph was taken of the original sign that marked the road. This photograph is the only known image of the sign, which has since become a historical artifact.
The sign is distinguished by its unique font, which is identical to that used by Dunlop at the time. The color, damage, and size of the sign have been precisely replicated by Vinsign, a company that specializes in reproducing vintage signs. The Vinsign reproduction is virtually indistinguishable from the original metal sign.
The reproduction is fully handmade and painted using authentic materials, ensuring that each sign is a unique work of art. Vinsign provides a certificate of authenticity, a unique production number, and a luxury postcard that includes a photo and description of the original sign.
This sign is not only a piece of French history but also a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity. The fact that this sign survived the ravages of war is a testament to the enduring power of human creativity and ingenuity. Owning a Vinsign reproduction of this historic sign is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history and to honor the brave men and women who fought for the freedom that we enjoy today.
