16: QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIAN RAILROAD LOCOMOTIVE NUMBER PLATE
The heavy brass plate of rectangular form with convex corners, high outer rim and cast No 662 in high relief.

Steve Cregut purchased the remains of his collection around the turn of the last century. The collection of keys in this auction, and other items seen with old colored paper tags, are from the Johnson collection.
