Installed in the early 1990s. North Weald and Ongar covered with a white enamel plate when the section of line closed.
I remember them from that era, but they seem convinced it’s a new installation.
Categorically not from this decade since the interchanges have coloured ticks that are no longer part of London Underground design standards. Further more, new signs would be in Johnston 100 and looking at the lower case G’s in particular I can safely say that this New Johnston. The signs may simply have been repositioned following Crossrail works and the opportunity may have been taken to clean them up.
Still, I can see why people may think that they are new because it looks in remarkably good condition considering the aggressive environment these signs are in.

Definitely early-‘90s. New Johnston “4” top left, now back to proper Johnston (which would have distinct points, rather than blunts to the character) Sticker over Stratford interchanges, which someone has tried to peel!
