Pre State Issued New Jersey License Plates

Certified Price

A scarce, matched pair of pre 1908 NJ auto license plates. In the era from 1903-1908 (when cars were just a plaything for the wealthy) the State of NJ had not yet begun to issue official license plates (they assigned a number and a car owner was required to fabricate their own plates using this number). This great matched set appears to be fabricated from tar coated leather, w/ a great all original surface patina. One of plates has a little edge wear and some breaks and loss to the metal digits, but overall they are attractive and display very nicely.
