We recently came into possession of eight (8) vintage new-old-stock blue Atlantic City license plate toppers, which we are selling individually. These plates were made by the Advertising Plates Co, based out of Toledo, Ohio, and marked as such on the back.
PLEASE NOTE: Item is a reflective blue color which is why it may appear to be two shades of blue in our pictures, it is just from the lighting.
Items were found in the old stored inventory of a 1960’s car parts store in unused condition, however all show some minor defects consistent with what was apparently a rather low quality manufacturing process. A few have some bits of paper stuck to them, and all have some paint misses, chips, overspray and discolorations. All are in essentially the same condition. We will always choose the best example we have left when shipping. All of the other examples we have found of this item online show very similar condition issues to the ones we have. Apparently as novelty items, the manufacturer was simply no perfectionist, but we promise and it will be evident that these items were never used. In a way, the defects add to the charm of these momentos of a simpler time.
Dimensions: 10″w x 2&7/8″l
