Farm Family Collector Plates
The 1978 and 1979 plates, handcast in sand molds, bring to four the number of plates thus far released. Each plate is cast in Tolmetal, a metal that resembles early pewter but has greater strength.
The Old Lancaster Mint introduced the series in 1976 with its"The American Farm Family - Foundation of the Nation" plate as a bicentennial tribute to farm families.
Each plate in the series is serial numbered. A total of 11 different hand operations are involved in the creation of each plate.
Cost of the collector plates is $23.95 each, plus $2.00 for shipping and handling.
