This Dairy Queen sign in Paxton is now missing its neon and is painted a lighter shade of blue. This sign and the ones in Worthington and Minneapolis above do not have the curved piece at the back. All three of the cones are larger and do not have the circles behind them. There is also no horizontal line. I assume that these signs were a later design. [map]
