There was a licensing procedure in New Jersey for the purchase of
the small black powder 'Estes' model rocket engines. The buyer
had to get a permit from the Bureau of Mine Safety Division.
The buyer had to be 18 years old and applied for the permit yearly.
The fee was (2) two dollars.
(Time period as early as 1971; through 1992)

This is what the permit looked like.

This is my correspondence with the Governor of New Jersey
to pass a bill removing the licensing requirements. (1992)

I also built plastic models. I am developing a Model Construction Page
and a Jetex Model Construction Page.
Its a shame that I didn't take more pictures while I build.
