Is this the dealer plate?

See the attached picture, I'm trying to research the history of our new trailer. She is an Ohio built 1959 Pacer 18'. While clearing the interior, I discovered an old newspaper dated 1967 from Colorado. The previous owner of the trailer (prior to the 3 month temporary owner in Texas) took her camping for years from his home in Colorado.

I am trying to contact the Colorado owner as well as looking in the Yellowpages for the mailing name listed on the newspaper.

As for that name plaque on the front, Files & O'keefe, when googled enough, turns up lots of farm equipment purchases, and is listed as a member of "Associated Equipment Distributors", which is what led me to believe it is the dealer plate. But if it is not a chain, then I want to know what happened between Maine and Colorado. I'm curious.

And, no I can't find any ghost numbers of a WBCCI....

Oh wait. Which part were you joking about? haha. I thought the dealer plate/tags was one separate from the model and VIN plate, since there were a limited number of dealers in that time period...

I think I'm stuck looking up Coloradoans (sp?)

post #1 shows the dealers tag.
Post #2 does not. It shows the manufacturers plate and model. There was a day that Safari was a model and not full production line as it is today.
Post #3 shows the manufactures plate and the model plate of a very lucky owner.
