A bit of an enigma. Listed on the remarkableohio.com site as marker #1-59, and #4-59, but the sign itself is stamped 7-17. It's in Morrow county, so the X-59 would be correct, however X-17 is Crawford county. There is a marker in Crawford county stamped 7-17 as well. Being listed as 1-59 and 4-59 makes sense because the marker was replaced. The site says it was replaced in 1978 on one page, 1977 on another, and the marker itself shows 1978.
