Bike Plate

Remember these?  Eventually they evolved into stickers, and after that...who knows?  Do they even register bikes anymore?  This little item sold for $33 on eBay last month.   I found a newspaper reference from 1959 that bike licenses were 50 cents that year, so this one must have cost that or less when first purchased in 1947.  Sometimes the price of nostalgia seems a bit too high.
