The concensus I think is that if a road has had a "C" number added
purely as a bookkeeping reference by the council, but doesn't appear on
any signage, then a tag such as "official_ref" or "admin_ref" makes more
sense. See previous discussions here:
(and others linked from those threads).
suggests more traction for "official_ref" over "admin_ref".
However yours looks more interesting than the usual OSM "C" road:
It looks like it was previously a B road (OOC maps suggest the B1268)
and kept its number when it was downgraded. If it's a real ref on a
real road sign I don't think that anyone would disagree with it being
tagged with a C road ref.
I've seen at least one other signposted one in North Yorkshire (north of
Castle Howard somewhere - I suspect there are more) so it's not unique.
