    What I have here is something strange and I don't know what they are called but can assume what they are used for. I know the history on one of the name's called KIK Canada's own Soft Drink from the late 1920's and ended in the late 1960's. What strikes me is The famous brand name.

    Did some research and can't find what they are or called. I can only assume stamping.

    They are Rubber, the back part is aluminum?
    They are flat plates.
    I do see ink or old paint on some of them with screw holes possibly.

    Biggest Thank you I can give in advance for everyone who can help with knowledge about these things

    It would be nice if you would edit your post & choose 'show all full size' for the pictures. That way we don't have to click so many thumbnails. Thanks!

    are these by the original company's to print on their products or are they something anyone could buy and use for themselves. Thank you for the answer, I am now getting somewhere

    They were made and used by what ever business was contracted to print the advertising/packaging,etc.

    The large Coca Cola says "bottles for deposit". Hold them up to a mirror to read everything they say. My mind/eyes don't want to cooperate this late at night to decipher more than that. :D

    I don't understand why the KIK ones aren't reversed.

    That looks like a more recent KIK logo. Here's a bottle it can be seen on and note UPC. UPCs were launched in 1974 and didn't become widespread until about 10 years later. KIK was discontinued in Canada in 1984. So I'd think that was your window.
