Dimensions of the M*A*S*H Signpost

I received an e-mail the other day from Greg, a M*A*S*H fan who wants to build a recreation of the famous signpost. He’s looking for dimensions of the signs themselves that he can use and I’m hopeful that someone can help him out. Several other fans have made their own signposts in the past (you can see examples here) so maybe one day someone will put together instructions.

Please e-mail me or leave a comment if you can help.


  • According to the “Profiles in History” auction from a few years ago, the original set used M*A*S*H signpost was approx. 83″ tall.
    The signs ranged from 28″ to 36″ wide. The measurements were taken from the signpost that M*A*S*H set director Bert Allen had in his possession since the show went off the air in 1983. I hope that helps!

    Feel free to contact me (through here) if additional information is needed, and good luck!

    Do you happen to know the exact size of each sign?
