Original U.S. Aluminum License Plate Topper for Camp Atterbury in Indiana
Original Item: Only one Available. This is a genuine issue license plate topper from Camp Atterbury in Indiana. This installation was originally a U.S. Army Training location opened during WWII, as the massive mobilization required a large number of new camps be opened. It was utilized through WWII, and later used during the Korean War. After this the camp was dormant from 1954 until 1968, when the Army officially closed it. It was then reopened in 1969 as an Indiana National Guard camp, and remains active today.
This topper was most likely made in the mid-late 20th century, and would have been attached above the license plate, most likely to note affiliation with the camp. It most likely was not considered any type of definitive identification.
The topper measures approximately 12 1/4" x 4 3/4" and is of all aluminum construction. It features a painted U.S. Army Eagle Insignia on both sides. These flank the top two lines of text on the topper:
Offered in very good condition, with wear from use and age. There is still much of the original paint on the eagles, though the white background on the bottom banner is almost completely gone. There is not any marring around the mounting slots, so it most likely was never mounted on a car. Ready to display!
