COLLEVILLE SUR MER V
Price: € 275,00
There’s no information about the ‘panneau’ in Michelin’s archive or Colleville. The photo was taken on June 6th, 1944, on G.C.32, now D 514. The Duck originates from Omaha Beach and is now a permanent banner in Colleville sur Mer, where the ‘poteau’ once stood. It’s uncertain if it’s a genuine ‘Panneau Michelin’, so it’s available as a vintage and Michelin reproduction with precise measurements, color, and font. The sign includes a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number, and a luxury postcard of the original.
