Missouri highway markers have changed over the years, most recently in 2000 with the use of the wider rectangular sign blanks for three-digit highways and two-letter supplemental routes. Several years earlier, a white border was added and larger numbers and letters came into use.

Here is a head-to-head comparison for Missouri 265 in the Branson area. The left photo, on Missouri 76 west of Branson, shows the earliest style with no white border around the marker. The middle photo, of a sign assembly in Branson West, shows the later style of the 1980s and 1990s. The right photo shows an intersection at Reeds Spring with the newest marker styles.
