1935 "O"Kyle Kuser
These [in the photo below] came as a lot of 6 plates from a gentleman who found them years and years ago in Bivalve, NJ at the Bivalve Center/Museum tucked in a crevice of some sort behind an "unfinished wall" as he called it.
He mentioned that the plates were wrapped when he found them, but that his children had unwrapped them.
(The porcelain sign came with the lot as well. I have a feeling that originated from the Bivalve center at some point also.)
When I visited the museum, they knew of him quite well, but knew nothing of the plates. I know that he was involved in the reconstruction/repair of the facility so I can only imagine he simply took them home with him.
Perhaps - because of where these were found, they were issued directly to the public from that specific office (as it was part of the NJ DEP Fish and Wildlife Commission - Shellfisheries Division) ?
They had a large community there [in Bivalve] of a few thousand workers and 1935 would have been towards the end of their booming period.
