Back in the day that Tag didn’t mean anything to anyone unfortunately.
Haha ya but it meant enough for someone to go scrounge up a screwdriver and fight with the ac line if it was in the way.
I imagine you posed the question to the 91 yr old boy

No fender tag drops the value by 80% If I were you, I'd sell that Charger ASAP before the value drops any lower.

Talk to me, I should be able to locate someone to take it off your hands.

My guess with holes showing that the ac hose clamp and the tag shared the same hole. So I’m assuming during a Ac service or Jose replacement the tech never took the two seconds needed to line the clamp and data tag up to screw it back down. Then with just one screw the plate moved around enough to just fall off over the last 50 years. And yes, the old timer doesn’t even remember a tag there.

When I restored my SS1 coloured 68 Coronet 500 convertible and it came time for paint I had a shop mix me up some paint cards so I could try and match the paint on the steering column mount up under the dash. Because this never sees the light of day after the dash is put in, and is protected mostly from any harm due to location, the paint is usually as close to OEM you are going to find. After several tweeks I was finally able to get a paint mix that matched perfectly and that is the mix that was used when it came time to lay down the colour on the car.

So to document and validate the 999 colour of your charger make sure to take lots of pics of surviving paint....especially up under the dash as I mentioned above.

Very good idea, I didn’t think of that.
