I recently came across this issue myself after finding a dog tax tag in my front yard. Initially I thought that Oliver referred to the name of the dog, however some research led me to discover that this referred to the issuing township. D.T.11 stands for Dog Tax and the year 1911. Using this information I contacted the issuing township who replied that all of those records were forwarded on long ago to the encompassing county's treasurers office. After contacting the county treasurer, they told me that they only kept 7 years of such records. While I'll never be able to trace the history of that tag any farther, it still is a really cool and semi-rare find as pre-1950s/60s tags seem to be uncommon. Congrats on the find!
