SIZE: 12.5" x 6.5" (oversized compared to modern plates)

CONDITION: 8 on a 10 scale: GOOD. [Great for a plate that is about 57 years old! ]

The plate shows a bit of wear at just the upper two mounting SLOTS (not round). T is some very small amount of surface rust and t - isolated to the lower left portion of the plate. T are no folds or cracks of any kind - it is perfectly flat. A few millimeter size flecks of white paint have flaked off of the letters - minor. T is one tiny scrape thru the paint, about 1/4" long between the "8" and the "7".

Good luck bidding !!
