Description

This vintage advertising sign for Liberty Warehouses, Durham, North Carolina, is a car license plate / tag from the 1940s. This tobacco collectible tin is a rare find.

FREE SHIPPING on this item.

Vintage condition, with rusting, bent edges, marring, scarring, and all the other vintage nuances one might expect from a used plate / tag.

SIZE: It is a little less than 12 inches by 6 inches.

Colors and lettering: orangish-red and yellow paint; says "Liberty Warehouses Durham" and, in the corners, "Sell" and "$$."

Be sure and see the closeup of one of the dented corners. Both sides are very rusty, as you can see in the images.

It's not actually a "license plate," of course -- no state and no numbers -- but a car tag with advertising on it.

This tobacciana collectible advertising "tin" (not sure what metal this is) would make a great addition to your cigarette and tobacco collection, or a wonderful souvenir of the old Liberty Warehouses in Durham, NC and North Carolina's tobacco history.

This would make great wall decor for someone living in the Liberty Warehouse district of Durham, NC.

Over 30 years ago, I was given this tag by an old farmer friend of mine who had worked at the Liberty Warehouses in the 1940s, when he was given this tag, and he passed it along to me. I am downsizing my collections, though, and am looking for a new home for this wonderful piece.

You won't find another one of these anywhere else.
