Rare Conover NC North Carolina Masonite City Booster License Advertising Plate

Click image for more foto

This listing is for a masonite city? booster? license plate from the western NC city of Conover. The fact that the plate is made of masonite instead of steel leads me to believe it was produced during a time when metal was unavailable for such uses. WW2? Korea? I"m sure someone knows - or could find out. I"ve never seen another one like it.
The population of Conover in the 1940 and 1950 censuses was under 1,200, so I can"t imagine many of these were produced, let alone survived. It is nice condition with expected wear from use, especially considering the material from which it was made. It measures approximately 5 x 12. The front and back of the plate is pictured.
