Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Early Ford Identification Plate Help

I found this thin metal Ford plate yesterday during a pick. It appears to be made out of copper. I'm going to try to upload a picture. It needs a good cleaning, but I'm afraid to scrub it or use CLR because I don't want to ruin it. My guess is it's some sort of early identification for some part on a Ford, but when I search the internet, I don't see one like it. Does anyone out there know what it is?

Thanks!

Aaron, those look like rust pits in steel. The plate was most likely copper plated. Check it with a magnet. I have no idea what it was for.

Ford script in oval, later than model T. Likely from the '40s or '50s, even '60s.

Thanks for the information! I assumed it was older than the 40s because it looked primitive.
You guys have a very active and excellent forum going here. Thanks again!

Ford part number F20C... is a fuel tank for '85-88 Ford Ranger Pickup. It looks like it was spot welded to whatever it came off of.
