Three digits are squeezed into the space usually used for two digits on this route marker for US 385 in Holyoke, Colorado. One variant of the FHWA series, series B, would have worked well here, but it appears that this marker uses FHWA series C, optically compressed to fit.

US 6 and US 385 intersect in Holyoke.
