052887 - The Icon first thought this was a a zip code, but upon further study, we believe the owner of this plate was born on May  28, 2987. We welcome clarification from any Icon view with more information. We spotted this plate on a blue Honda CR-V in Ada. (The monthly renewal sticker confirmed our birthday theory.)

This Christmas card from 1919 offers a political statement of the time. It reads: "I can't drink your health this Xmas with either bourbon or rye, for I'm living the life of a camel in a state that has gone bone-dry."
