The most commonly known key chain license plates are those issued by the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization, commonly referred to as "DAV Tags". This program began in the early 1940s and continued into the mid-1970s. These DAV tags were sent out along with a request for a contribution to support the efforts of Disabled Veterans. The DAV tags matched the true number of the owner's automobile license plate. They did a reasonably good job of mimicking the colors and design of each states license plate of that year. If lost, instructions on the back of each miniature license plate asked the finder to deposit into any mailbox. The keys would then be returned to the DAV and they would then return the keys to the registered owner.
I am located in Wichita, Kansas and will accept postal money order or if you have a Paypal account, contact me and I can send you an invoice through there. There is a total of 35 tags and I am asking for $100, which does include shipping.
