1914

The plate you see above took me just over 21 years to find. Well, yes, I'd seen other ones, mainly on eBay, which is where I found this one, but they always were just beyond my reach, price-wise.

FINALLY, though, after all these years, I have one and I LOVE it!

Why are they so hard to find? Well, I have my thoughts on that; the foremost reason I can come up with is the horrendous paint quality these are known to have. Otherwise it seems to be well-made, heavy and in very nice condition.
A little 1914 trivia for those who want to know their plate's history: On the back of this plate, there is the following:
"MADE BY THE GREENDUCK Co. CHICAGO"
