Right Number, Wrong Area Code

Goof: Missouri 59 instead of US 59 in northwest Missouri

There's a Missouri 59, so at first glance, you'd think there was nothing wrong with this picture.

Then look at the area code on the advertising sign to the left. It's 660. That's the area code for northwest Missouri, where US 59 is located. Yes, this sign is at the western end of Missouri 46 at US 59 near Fairfax. A Missouri 59 sign would be valid in the southwest part of the state, but not in northwest Missouri.
