Good morning everybody,
I picked up this "Junk Peddlers License" at a flea market this weekend. I am wondering if this was something really issued and used, or if it is a fantasy item. It states that it expired Dec. 31, 1964. It has the mayor, Richard J. Daley's name on it, and the city clerks name John C. Marcin's name on it also. I am also trying to decide if it is solid brass or brass coated. It has some wear on it. I really liked this item because I sometimes feel like a "Junk Peddler" when I am selling at flea markets every now and then. Paid 2.00 for it, so it did not break the bank ! Definitely going to be a keeper no matter what. Thanks for looking, T.G.
Oh yeah, it measures approximately 1 1/2" wide, 2" in length.
