a regular (round steel top) manhole with the deathstar; the only ones I've
noticed are the traditional Bell System design. But I haven't paid close
attention, so I could have missed the newer ones.

Bell System signs with black lettering usually appear to be associated with
local telco cables, and in fact say "C&P Telephone". This is the first
time I've seen one mentioning AT&T. However, I have seen larger
black-on-yellow AT&T signs marking an copper-pair cable route from Mt.
Weather, and giving a number for AT&T's Finksburg, MD facility. To make
things more confusing, the repeater huts on this route are simple
concrete-block structures, and have Bell Atlantic signs on them.
Based on that limited experience, my speculation would be that the sign
might be for some type of AT&T cable other than L-carrier. Perhaps the
West Palm Beach location is a clue - do you know if there is/was a manned
AT&T facility there?

But I noted the county imagery registration is off between years;
