Pair of New Jersey License Plates, 1948, Metal, vintage

The pair of 1948 license plates is good looking. What I think I like best about these plates is the combination of the mustard background color and the raised black letters and numbers.

Yes, there is some paint loss on the raised numbers and letters but such is to be expected on plates of this era that have been used. I think using these plates as a decorative element in a den or family room as wall garniture would be a “real statement”.

These plates are part of a large collection of plates we recently purchased from an estate in Ellsworth, Maine.

The plates are 10 ¾” long X 6 ½” wide. The upper left corner of one of the plates is slightly rolled inward. I feel the plates are in darn good condition.
