Tom Reese who authored regular columns in the AACA magazine wrote some articles in the 1990s on the Selden plates including a breakdown of the approximate range of serial numbers for each year they were issued (1903 - 1911) based on original plates that were still affixed to surviving automobiles. Those articles could tell you approx. what year tag #91843 was issued.

Regarding the small saucer is a garage sale knick- knack and would only be worth a few dollars to someone that is truly interested in it.
