Why purchase this Sico Oil Company Lubster Oil Plate?

Go back in time to the 1950's with this lubester oil plate from Sico Oil Company. Sico provided plates like this one to service stations as a means of advertising their products. The plates were provided free of charge and were often damaged due to their heavy usage. Although it is more than half a century old, this plate remains in Excellent condition. Made of aluminum, it measures 8" and weighs about four ounces. The plate is a great choice for automobile-themed collections.

Period collectors will also appreciate this plate as it connects them with an important decade in world history. Sen. Joseph McCarthy made his allegations about communists in the US government, and the United States fought the Korean War. The decade also saw the only successful presidential draft campaign to successfully put a man in the Oval Office in the 20th century with the election of Gen. Dwight David Eisenhower. The decade was also important in scientific fields, as the DNA double helix was discovered and the Soviet Union took an early lead in the Space Race with the launch of Sputnik.
