Price: € 370,00
A rare “movieshot” captured on June 8, 1944 in St.e Mere Eglise depicts a unique town sign from the D-Day landings. The original sign lacked the road designation “N13,” which was in transition from “GC” to “RN” or “D” at the time. Though the original cannot be located, Vinsign has created an authentic reproduction with identical color, proportions, font, and damage. The sign comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number, and a luxurious postcard with a picture and description of the original.
This text describes a unique placename sign from the days of D-Day on June 6, 1944. The image of the original sign is a rare “movieshot,” filmed on June 8, 1944, on the main road N13 in St.e Mere Eglise.
Interestingly, the designation “N13” is missing from both the original sign and the authentic reproduction. This is because at that time, they were in the process of renaming the road from “GC” (Chemin de grande communication), which it was called in the 1930s, to either “RN” (Route Nationale) or “D” (Route Departementale).
Although the original sign cannot be traced, Vinsign has managed to create an authentic and high-quality reproduction of it. The color, proportions, font, and even the damages are identical to the example taken from the film recording.
This panneau comes with a Vinsign certificate, a unique production number, and a luxurious postcard with a photo and description of the original sign.
This piece of history is a remarkable artifact that allows us to connect with the past and appreciate the sacrifices made during the D-Day invasion. The attention to detail in the reproduction demonstrates a respect for history and the significance of the event.
The fact that the original sign cannot be found adds to the mystery and allure of this piece. It serves as a reminder of the importance of preserving historical artifacts and the stories they hold.
This sign is not only a valuable piece for collectors and history enthusiasts, but it also serves as a symbol of resilience and courage during one of the most significant events of the 20th century.
In conclusion, the unique placename sign from the days of D-Day, 6 June 1944, is a significant historical artifact that offers a connection to the past and a reminder of the bravery and sacrifices made during the invasion. Vinsign’s authentic reproduction demonstrates a respect for history and adds to the allure of this piece.
