These are made from actual license plates with the plates/tags that come my way so if your state isn’t represented keep checking back! Yes, they are old plates that show the grit and wear of being beat around on the back of a car then kicked around in a barn or wherever! They have been cleaned with soap and water and then treated with boiled linseed oil to prevent further rusting and to coat them so that they can be used for whatever purpose you see fit! Do your car keys need a place to be tossed? How about your loose change? Popcorn anyone?
