I have a small copper plaque, inch and a quarter x inch and a quarter square, fifty thousandths thick. I can't remember where I got it, but it must have been 15-20 years ago at a flea market or something.


Permitted
to grow 150
tobacco plants
REVENUE PAID
states dept.
of
essential commodities
st. hellier

Anyone have a clue as to its history?

Its an English WW2 era warrent to grow tobacco issued from St Helliers Jersey UK..
The State Department of Essential Commodities was akin to our Rationing Boards.. I have no idea what its worth is today, but I promise you the man that originally owned it was sitting on a small fortune.
