Three 1974-76 Official Bicentennial Commemorative Sterling Silver & Gold Plated Plates. These were likely issued by Franklin Mint, but they come with no boxes or paperwork. The plates have wear, spotting, dents & some light pitting.
The gold plate has worn off in places. These are weighted plates with a 1/4 chamber behind the front center disc. This cavity was filled with plaster or cement and then the center disc was installed. These center discs on some plates are slightly loose on one side.The disc on the reverse side states that these plates are Solid Sterling Silver, but the internal inert weight makes determining the actual silver weight difficult. The plates are approximately 8 diameter and weigh 732 grams each or about 26 ounces in total for all 3.
