In the 50's all the major stores in Kansas City used the Charge-O-Plate for customers' convenience. Each store kept its own accounts, but the customer used one metal plate which each store notched in the location corresponding to its stamping machines at the registers.

ah .....charge-o-plates ..

my recollection is Mom had different plates for the different stores ..
( but that was Salt Lake, not Kansas City .. proabably fewer stores )
