Dog tag salvaged number necklace

Choose your number from the pre-made ones I have left!

The aluminum numbers were salvaged from a decommissioned Canada Post outlet - rescued out of wooden drawers from an old building in Vancouver, BC. (please see the last photo). They were originally used as part of a sorting system. Safe to say the numbers date from circa the 40s or 50s.

I've only got about 70 of each number, so consider these similar to a limited edition fine art print, as only 70 of each number will EVER be made.

I clean them up, hand cut each number and drill holes so the numbers hang loose in front of a brass base, reminiscent of army "dog tags. The brass has been hand-aged to a lovely vintage hue.

Width of number: .25"
Length: varies slightly between 1" to 1.5". Each one is unique.

Average chain size is 20" long (some may be slightly shorter).
