This is a plate that was found in my grandfather's house in the UP of Michigan after his death in 1986. He was 100% Swedish. I find it interesting that one of the only two others that I have found through an internet search was purchased in a Swedish thrift shop. There is a gold leaf mark on the back which is included in the photos. I am trying to discover how rare it really is. I would like to know why it is the way it is. Is it a typo? If so, how many are there like this one. The only information that I have found is this blog about two similar plates that I know exist. Link is below.

    That's an awesome plate! I have no information for you, but it certainly is a conversation piece! Or should I say, 'pease'?

    I would think it was quickly made OVERSEAS in 1968 to capitalize on the desire in the market for Kennedy items after RFK was assassinated.

    In most non english speaking countries these "mistake" items are very typical. I have seen it in Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia and Panama (just a few countries that come to mind).
