I am collector of restaurant ware. I have had this plate in my collection. I recently discovered it is a match to CO OP gasoline and motor oil logo. Does anyone have any history on this co ? Possibly Minnesota ? Thanks !

Many of the farm co-ops had operations much broader than just farm supplies and gasoline. Particularly in the upper Midwest, where Midland operated. In some areas they operated mercantile stores, supermarkets, and more. Chances are these were a grocery store giveaway, or from a co-op that operated a diner.
