A Little Piece of American History


Sometimes you just have to buy something that's a little different. When I saw this Statue of Liberty plaque I had no idea what it was, but for $0.75 I had to have it! A brass plate of Miss Liberty is mounted on a wooden base. Researching was easy. It was offered by Avon in 1985 to celebrate the centennial of the dedication of the statue on October 28, 1886. The image is that of a 1922 US postage stamp. This piece is a little scratched and needs some cleaning, but I think it's a great display item. It can be used as a wall plaque since there is a recessed area on the back for hanging, or as a paperweight.
