The sign was removed from the Jerome Telegraph Office and measures approximately 28x32 inches in length. The sign is circular with the logo "Western Maryland Fast Freight Line" and includes a symbolic "redwing" as part of the circle, the release says.

Park rangers were investigating the case and examining the historical structure and the damages caused by the theft.
