Talking WOW what a find in the trunk!!

Just thought I would post this: I have found way back in the trunk a license plate that is dark blue (Navy) with gold little 60's star burst (the kind you saw in the period white formica, the burst were gold there too). It has gold writting on it and says
"For 1960, A Wounderful New World Of Fords" Then below that it says
"Thunderbird"!!! It is quite old with fantastic patina. It has a few rock chips but otherwise in fantastic condition!! I take it that this was a dealership plate given out by the factory to put on cars in the showroom. There is no way this is a reproduction. I have heard of these factory advertising plates (seen a couple in dealrship photos)but have never seen on in person. Has anyone heard of this or have seen one??
