Default Towboat Omar Plaques

The Point Pleasant River Museum (Point Pleasant WV) has one of the OMAR renderings on display and I also have one in my personal collection, which I bought some years ago. Indeed, they are unique and I, too, would like to learn more of their origin. I surmised that, perhaps, they were issued by the Ohio River Company, which owned the boat.
