Bought this beacuse it's cool, I'm a Ford guy and lived and worked in Dearborn, MI for almost a decade. It's marked A-M 10-50 on the bottom. I assume the numbers are production dates what is the A-M and how long were these around. I thought mainly in the late 40's and that was it? LAlso not porcelain thought it would have been a thicker and heavier little sign.
