Re: WATCH AND CLOCK MAKERS PRINTING PLATE..SOLVED BY DCMATT AND CURIOUS THE GEORGE!!
Didn't realize you could "loan" something to a museum. Glad someone informed you of that before you donated it. You and your resource have come up with a lot of history on this plate/person from what I hear. Can't wait to see the plate fixed and find out the rest of the details you all have discovered. Me....besides the history that you and others have discovered. I want to see what's on the other side. It's driving me crazy! Glad to know someone could help you out on further history besides what DC Matt & Curious found. Good luck in many finds in your yard in the future! HH!

Thanks to DCMatt for turning me on to this thread. Reading through ALL the posts has really helped me with a piece I found recently, and also given me even a more awesome feeling abut the people on this forum. You guys are uber-helpful!
If you're interested in checking out the watch paper plate I found, check out http://www.treasurenet.com/forums/to...-embosser.html
The American Antiquarian Society wants to include it in their research library (a photo, not the actual piece). I'm hoping details on this engraving (actually, it may be acid-etched) will help you further decipher your amazing plate, which actually looks hand etched. Wonderful! Congrats on a super find
