ITEM CONDITIONS & DESCRIPTION:
New Jersey NUMBER: F over T 55B Matched Set COLORS: Blue on Straw
YEAR: 1947 SIZE: 6½”x10¾” TYPE: Steel Good Condition
Right now I’m offering our extensive collection of Auto License Plates, at least one or every year – some states had more than one type or size. The display started with the earliest – except for ‘do-it-yourself’ plates made of leather, wire grids, or wood to display the state-directed numbers. Those rare Owner-Made tags were extremely hard to find four decades ago, and more so today – even then we were unable to find one for each of those years. All such plates are extremely valuable, and we were honored that many owners loaned them to us for display. Needless to say, we returned those at the end of the Bicentennial period!
We show our NJ licenses just for identification. Not for sale at this time, but we thought they would be of interest you.
Physical shape Excellent Condition. Visible small chips in the blue lettering, which could readily be touched up for someone with a steady hand.
Probably issued in Essex County, New Jersey - usually indicated by first letter E or F
***With New Jersey DMV approval, you may be able to register and display them on your personal 1947 Antique or Classic Car!***These two license plates were for a car registered in 1947. They are standard NJ size and colors for that year – Blue lettering on front and reverse background then called Buff, now termed Straw since the current 6” by 12” NJ licenses).
We consider these to be in very GOOD Condition. The wear on the printing could easily be repaired, but we’ll leave that remedy up to our very fortunate one lucky winner!

I have been an ardent collector most of my lifetime, in many fields: Recorded Sound, Motion Pictures, Radio, Television, Stage, Antique Automobiles and License Plates, Mechanical Music, Thomas Edison, and San Francisco. Now Charlotte and I are selling collectables from all.
It was not easy to accumulate a complete run of New Jersey automobile licenses from their onset up to the new national 6x12” standard in the 1950s and beyond. My collection was displayed on the walls of Yesteryear Museum outside Morristown, along with a different group of sample plates for the Bicentennial Year 1976 - at least those from states which issued such, and didn’t charge a fortune – most states proudly sent theirs proudly and gratis!
When we moved to Florida, the plates were in several heavy movers’ boxes, which were mixed in with scores of others for the move. It wasn’t until after we had changed from one storage place to another that we discovered that the movers brought only one box to us – infuriating, but too late to do anything about it! We have dozens of plates and will be offering many more plates from the start into the mid 1950s, when the new national standards set in. Keep watching! ----Lee Munsick

ABOUT US ---
Charlotte and Lee Munsick - Octogenarians on the Florida Treasure and Space Coast, we experience frequent power outages and strong storms which bring web, phone and PC problems. In our most recent relatively gentle hurricane we were without power for nearly a week – others for far more. Should we ever again be unable to ship or communicate promptly, please be patient and please do not advise . That would simply delay things and cause all involved additional difficulties. Thank you!
Years back we had no power or PC for over a month; after the recent hurricane just shy of that. The first time customers and could not contact us! cancelled everything; our Feedback rating died. When ‘live’ again, we contacted all buyers. Every buyer settled happily and received their purchases. We lost over 300 Feedback points – we’d have been way over 1000 long ago if not for that case. Fortunately, all that did not occur this year, but we’ve had PC difficulties to this date!
In 15 years on including moves from NJ to VA to FL we’ve had 3 harsh negative Feedbacks – two due to service shutdowns as above, and one because a buyer did not read or heed our information. His fault, but while 3 reps said we did everything correctly, eventually ruled against us and he caused our first Feedback loss because he forced PayPal to refund his payment.
