Did some digging and found "5.5" down a Illinois vehicle tag.
In 1917 Illinos used tags and plates for registration of motor vehicles and motor bicycles.
The tag is heavy guage aluminum 2" disk that was held in place by 2 rivets.
Cleaned up well sorry no pics.
Will bring to next meeting.



Love to rescue old coin from their dirt graves.

Those are neat, I like the bike plates too.



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.
