    WW2 auto license plates

    With a big effort to save steel, some motor vehicle license plate were made from a cardboard and soybean mixture for general use. There was a problem with animals such as dogs and livestock who would chew parts of the license plate off when mounted on a vehicle. These plates belonged to a neighbor of my father who was also a local policeman, his badge was #95 and his address was 934

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Like today's vehicle wiring that has coatings made from vegetable products and has vermin attack it, I would think rats and mice would join racoons and others. Come out in the AM to find mounting hardware alone...

    Brings to my mind the 24th Panzer Division that suffered a number of their tanks being rendered combat-ineffective behind the line at Stalingrad by hordes of hungry Bolshevik mice that ate the insulation off of their wiring.
