This is a collection that I have been building for many years. Most were produced during the war time, with a few after the war. The known colors are red, blue, brown, and this Douglas one, the only colored one I have seen. There are related plates. Please share what you have!DSCF6231.JPG DSCF6233.JPG DSCF6234.JPG

On the back is a bit of information on the plant.

and related. The Convair plate is the only one I have seen replicated in ashtray form, and only in red.DSCF6229.JPG DSCF6244.JPG DSCF6246.JPG

 

There are two different Naval Air Station Plates, I have only been able to collect this one. The Fairchild plate is made by Kettlesprings Kilns
