    These are the type of finds I never see turn up in the UK. Defending the Empire meant most of it was lost over seas. Great find, & near impossible to repeat.

    That thing is awesome Hogge! I had never heard of one of these, so I googled around some and learned a bit about them. One of the best parts (for me) about this hobby is learning about historical artifacts like this one. Voting that one up top.

    Congrats on the rare piece, well worth the wait it seems.

    I'd rather find that than a gold coin any day. It's difficult for people to grasp how special of as find that box plate is.

    And the fact it has to wait around votes clearly shows.... 1) None of the banner choosers have seen it yet... or 2) The banner choosers are among the population who can't grasp this. There's no other way to put it other than it's pure insanity a USA pewter, or one of the more common GW types goes up, but this needs more numbers? I think part of the problem is the average digger does not understand the rarity from WW1/2 era, to common CW plates like a US or breast plate, to fairly rare 1812, and the more typical type Confederate plates posted when they are dug.... to very rare period Rev War plates and the best Confederate ones. (Talking rarity to dig, you'd need a better plate to hang with the best Confederate) I completely understand why it is the way it is, but it's too bad something so good probably won't get the credit it deserves.

    It's hard to determine the value of a find like this. In all likelihood, this could be your most valuable find yet, even more than 1783 CFT KGIII. When it takes more than a simple Google search to find comparable sales figures, you know you've got something special.
    I've seen a few nice finds slip through the cracks over the last year or so that absolutely should have made banner, but didn't because they aren't flashy like a gold coin.

    IP, I think that some people see GW Buttons, common gold coins, CSA Plates, etc. up top regularly, so they think those are automatic Banner finds and they vote accordingly. Finds like this are so rare that people just don't have any knowledge base to work with, so they see the thread and say "cool find" and move on. That's why it's so important for people like you and the handful of others who understand the rarity, and who have the verbal skills to articulate why this is such an incredible find, to explain it clearly to the less informed.

    I also admire his ability to speak logically about these things. And his willingness to be honest wether people like it or not. Any dude in spandex and a cake is good in my book lol

    It's an interesting comparison to the 1783 because like counterfeit halfpennies Rev War plates have a very small collecting base who are willing to dig deep into their pockets, and if those guys are all out on an item the value falls off a cliff. I know the person who bought the 1783 and even though it was in fairly poor condition by his standards, he is one of the main ctft collectors in the US and thought it may be his only chance to get one. The plate also may be in an equal category of rarity, and no question a desirable relic, but it really comes down to how bad a certain few want it.
