COLLECTOR PLATE "1776"   "THE GREAT AMERICAN REVOLUTION"    "1776"

THIS PLATE IS 10-5/8" IN DIAMETER & MADE OF PEWTER OR ALUMINUM, IT'S NOT MAGNETIC AS NONE OF MY PLATES ARE MAGNETIC, BUT I KNOW SOME ARE PEWTER AND THINK ABOUT HALF OF THEM ARE, BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TELL FOR SURE. THEY ARE ALL VERY UNIQUE AND DECORATIVE. THIS PLATE AND ONE OTHER HAVE THE SAME ART WORK IN THE CENTER, "THE SIGNING OF "THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE" BY JOHN TRUMBULL, BUT THE PLATES ARE VERY MUCH DIFFERENT, BUT SIMILAR IN THE RESPECT THAT THEY ARE BOTH HAVING TO DO WITH THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION. THE BACK OF THE PLATE HAS ALOT MORE CAST WORK GOING ON. IN THE VERY CENTER, IN AN INDENTED OVAL, IS A CANNON ON WHEELS. BENEATH THAT ARE THE CITY, STATE, & YEAR. CANTON, OHIO 1975. AT THE 5 O'CLOCK MARK ON THE BACK ARE THE LETTERS "SB" W/ A "B" BELOW THEM. AT THE 3 O'CLOCK MARK AND TOWARDS THE CENTER ARE THE LETTERS "PV" W/ A "K" BELOW THEM. ABOVE THAT AT THE 2 O'CLOCK MARK IS A CAST OAK TREE INSIDE AN INDENTED CIRCLE, JUST TO THE LEFT OF THAT ARE THE LETTERS "TSR". AT THE 9 O'CLOCK MARK ARE THE LETTERS "GIF". ON THE OUTSIDE RIM AT THE 4 O'CLOCK MARK IS THE NUMBER 2157 IN RAISED NUMBERS. ALSO HAS THE RAISED 1/2" SQUARE PIECE AT THE TOP IN THE BACK W/HOLE FOR HANGING OR MOUNTING. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK BIDDING.
