You are bidding on a SUPER, vintage 1922 CONNECTICUT license plate! Heavier tag has a cream/off-white base with embossed brick red lettering and rims. 100% ORIGINAL, with NO TOUCH-UPS, and nice paint gloss left on it. It is also unusually long (about 15 x 6), though this is fairly common among older tags. Red lettering stands out terrifically from off-white base and uses an unusual bubble-letter typeface. Despite its dense population, Connecticut is not the easiest state for finding extremely old license plates, and this tag is in AMAZING shape for being 93 years old!
Plate is straight and lies completely flat, with NO BENDS and NO surface rust. There are two extra holes on the inside of the top bolt slots (undoubtedly from an old mounting job), but these do NOT affect the integrity of the metal in ANY way. (They almost look like they are extra mounting holes from the original manufacturing, but you can tell they"re not if you flip it over to the back.) There are also a few minor spots where rust has taken off some paint, as shown. Finally, on the back, there are some old drips of black paint. Displays fantastically on your vintage "20s auto or your den, garage, or man-cave wall. Plate you see (registration 51-578) is the exact plate you"ll receive. Definitely check out the photos for all the close-up details!
Plate is perfect for any Connecticut or 1922 license plate collector, Constitution State resident or native, or anyone celebrating a birthday or anniversary from 1922! A totally authentic, super, vintage piece of early auto memorabilia and Americana. Makes a great gift or a terrific addition to your bar, roadhouse or lounge decor!
