Vintage Metal Number Tags

Yesterday I posted up my vintage numbered metal tags that I found over the weekend. I also posted them up on Facebook. I was offering them up for $1.00 each plus shipping. (I have them listed on Etsy for $2 each but am offering the discount for Facebook fans and blog readers) 

I'm kind of amazed at how quickly these went! I only bought 15 and was really kicking myself because they had an entire box full of them.

So yesterday I emailed the Architectural Salvage place where I bought them asking if they still had them so I could purchase the rest. I went back this morning (too impatient for emails!) and they had them set back for me! I will be going back again. They are great there and have such a huge selection. I bought 63 more (all of them that they had)! Five of which are already sold and waiting to hear back on another 12.

At any rate thought I would do a posting solely about the tags in case anyone else is interested. I'm really amazed at what a hot item they turned out to be!

I'm not sure what type of metal they are. They kind of feel and look like the zinc lids on the blue mason jars.
