Connecticut Mountain Bike Sports Classic 1953 CT Plate. Most likely originally found in box of Cheerios, back in the Day.
If you're a veloster of a certain age you'll remember the cool premium items inside boxes of cereal that Mom brought home for breakfast. The point was to inspire young guys (and gals) to eat, eat, eat boxes of Wheat-a-Bix, Cheerios, Corn Flakes, Rice Crisps, whatever, so we could collect all fifty states-worth of plates. Maybe we had 48 states back then. At any rate, the promotion worked for a long time. Cracker Jax STILL includes prizes and surprises in every box.
A young Friend of mine hung this CT plate on the seat of his TREK. Sure does bring back fond memories of a golden age of pedaling.
