This is a circa 1944 Missouri DAV tag, which is a small key tag in the shape of an automobile license plate made by the Disabled Veterans of America. Starting during World War II, the DAV sold these tags (also known as “IdentoTags”) to auto owners to raise funds. The address on reverse of the tag would ensure delivery of the keys to the DAV, and in turn, to the owners. The tag is numbered 163 708.
Approximately 9/16” in height and 1-3/8” in width.
Paper, celluloid, nickel-plated brass.
