It might be worthwhile picking up the nonstandard color of the
Nassau and Suffolk county markers. Beyond that, I'm inclined to
say, "let it go."

I happened to notice while driving through the Catskills last

the pentagon intermixed higgledy-piggledy, although in most cases
the pentagonal signs looked newer.
