Dog tag salvaged number necklace

Which number will you choose? Your birth year? Your lucky number? The possibilities are almost endless - I can make you one featuring any number from 1 to 100.

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.

I'm putting these vertical numbers on a chunkier chain, for a more industrial, masculine look. Choice of necklace length; 18", 20", or 22".

So choose your number! Just leave me a message in the "notes to seller" section upon purchase.

I also have these available as a cuff, or in a horizontal orientation on a daintier chain.
