    Re: tag unkown found by morris

    ok I had another person say it was from a telephone pole tag. asked a co-worker that has lived in the area all his life and is old enough to remember/owen a car in 1953 he said NOPE that is not for a car tag...he also said it looks to have came off a telephone pole tag..

    Looks to me like an early way to validate the current year on a car license plate. You have to remember, they didn't have stickers back in 1953! I was there! JIM

    Don't take what I said as gospel, I am only guessing after all I was there, but only in 3rd grade! JIM

    Jim beat me to it. It looks like the replaceable year plate for a car license plate.

    Thats exactly what it is. I have found many . The big numbers are the year. The little numbers are the id number for the tag, just like the new stickers. Look at your plates, there pretty much the same, just paper.
