Default 1942 ca licence plate.

Found layin along a road...actually it's a 1941 plate that in 1942 they just gave you the top to put over your old plate.

Cool find! That plate wouldn’t last long here in Mich where they salt the roads throughout the winter!

WW. It's interesting that the tag is still attached & a full length one at that. Usually you see a corner tab only, that's pretty rare piece, can you say Ebay.

Yeah many (most?) states did the tag thing during WW2 to save metal for the war effort. That's in really good shape for finding it in the wild.
