Three vintage tin advertising ashtrays from the 1950's. They each have a different image of an woman on them. The phone number on them is 5 digits "7-7431". They are from the company "Battery & Elect Inc." which was located in "Gastonia, NC". The ashtrays also have "Hampton" on them. Each image is marked with a name ~"Pace Setter", "Heat Wave", & "Slip Knot". They measure 4 1/8" x 4 1/8" (10.5 cm x 10.5 cm).

    Did they have only 5 digit phone numbers in the 1950's ? When I was a kid in the 50's we had a 7 digit phone number with the first two digits being letters.

    I believe that 5 digit numbers changed to 5 digits & two letters in the 1950's. The amount of digits varied depending on the size of a city.
