    Dog License tag ?

    I found a dog tag that says The Humane Society, Rochester NY #6716 Call GR 3-7240.
    Can anyone give me an age on this?

    Shape ? Color ? metal used ? all make a difference most recently most tags are colored aluminum
    & oval

    I'm going to stick with late 50's 60's because of the phone number GR 3-7240

    OK a Little History,

    New York introduced the LLN-NNNN format in 1930
    with all the other cities following suit in 1947–48.

    so 1947–48. Forward

    So Jeff nailed down the earliest probable date. I'll nail down the latest. Pre 1968 in all likelihood. I believe the phone company did away with the letter prefixes around that time frame.
