    Plate Plate Plate!!!! Cincinnati Ohio

    So this is one of those finds you see other people dig up on YouTube but never expect to really find one yourself. Well today it happened, I grabbed one of my great white Buffaloes!!! Lol ..The day started by getting rejected at a few places but because of perseverance I ended up at a 1850s mansion in Cincinnati. Right next to that beautiful red brick side of the house I blindly wrapped my hands around this plate at every bit of 8 inches. The dirt is still moist so please advise on how I should clean this since I'm not finding relics like this every day.

    I would not run tap water on it. I would just use a soft tooth brush and clean the dirt off of it. I'm sure there is a better way of cleaning it be patient people will chime in soon. Very impressive find.

    That is also one I've never seen posted before.
    Seen lots of CSA plates posted, many get on the banner, but this is a first.

    Your Ohio plate is a great find indeed.

    great find. I agree with texjim on his recommendation. it is really easy to over clean something. I would just brush away a little of the dirt on the letters to help make them stand out. that is a rare Union related plate so make sure to take pics of it coming out of the ground and the location. I would get a notarized letter done to preserve the info for future generations. this is a high dollar plate and is banner worthy. congrats on an amazing find.

    I've never hurt a relic with a soft toothbrush water, and a tiny bit of detergent.
