Hello and thanks for looking, up for sale is the Official 1973 United States Presidential Inaugural Sterling Silver Plate depicting the bust of Richard Nixon and Spiro Agnew. This limited edition plate was produced by the Franklin Mint and is the first official Presidential Inaugural Plate in US history. The double portraits of President Richard Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew appear in relief and were sculptured by renowned American Medallic Sculptor, Gilroy Roberts. The condition of this plate is very good although the back of the plate has a few minor scuffs but we don't want to polish this piece of history. It was a very short time later when both of these men were forced from office, which makes this plate even more collectible.
