Hi everyone
I was digging in my back yard and about a foot or so down I found this little plaque/plate along with a bunch of brass and copper pieces/parts. It measures approx. 1" x 2 5/16" Stainless steel silver color. Any info. would be much appreciated. I live in Warren, MI
Thanks

I don't have a clue, but it sure is cool. If you don't want it, may I have it?

In the 19-teens and 1920's many cars still had wood and fabric as a body structure material. The first enclosed all-steel bodies were a quantum leap in safety, rigidity cost-savings and quietness. Dodge started the first mass-produced all-steel bodies in 1914.
Budd made quality steel car bodies for many companies for many years until Chrysler absorbed them in the 1950's.

@ImperialCrown - Cool this thing looks like it may be nearly 100 yrs old!
@chuzz - Think I'll keep it for now, it is pretty cool.
