The US route goes in a somewhat deep cut here, and this sign is only about 7 feet above the ground (if that).

This sign leaving Tabor, 2 miles north of the 184 intersection, still goes to St. Joseph, although 275 hasn't for years.

Even prior to decommissioning, the 275 shield stood alone at the intersection, meaning the southbound traveler didn't know which way 184 went.

Highway 184, like a few others (e.g. 21 and 160), was almost exactly a certain number of miles long, in this case 15. It would have been interesting to see the shield assembly combined, with arrows going both diagonal left and right. The directional-T layout may be related to when US 59 was on the road between Imogene and here, where it turned south onto the present alignment (notice the dominant curve is to the south).
