This is an enamel London Transport Country Area Bus Stop double vertical 'e' plate for Route 803 Express Request Stop.
It is approximately 130mm x 250mm and weighs around 500g.
Route 803 was an Express Service running between Welwyn Garden City and Maple Cross via Hatfield, St. Albans, Garston, Watford, Croxley and Rickmansworth during Monday to Friday rush hours only.
This double vertical plate will have come from one of the compulsory stops where Route 803 only stopped on request of which I suspect there were very few. It is extremely rare to find 'e' plates with 'Request Stop' on them. I have never seen one of these express request plates offered for sale before.
It is in generally good condition but does have some edge wear and a couple of small surface scratches and chips (see photo).
