USMC 1919 plate


Recommended Posts

I believe this is an enlisted mess-hall plate I inherited from a relative.  Diameter is about 5.5"; not very big for filling you stomach.  But then again, men were smaller 100 years ago.  There are no crack or chips, and looks be be in excellent condition.  Is there a market for this, and what would be the value?

Don't see how to edit this posting, so here is a change.  The plate is 9.5" in diameter.

These are not as desirable as the officer mess plates with EGAs and colored pinstripes, however defiantly a market for them.  The plain enlisted mess plates  can usually be found in the $25-$50 range depending on size.

Is there a Marine website that would be best to sell this item?

Once you get to 30 posts 'of substance' here- you will be allowed to sell on the "for sale" section. There are many, many Corps collectors here.
