Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction.

The seller describes it as:

YONKERS COUNCIL KHAKI AND RED STRIP-USED EXCELLENT CONDITION YONKERS COUNCIL IS ONE OF THE CITY COUNCILS. THERE WERE NO OTHER STRIPS ISSUED FOR THESE COUNCILS AND SO THE CITY NAME IS ACCEPTED AS THE COUNCIL STRIP.

Where will it end up?
