    I have this Stanford bronze plaque. The bronze is 8.5 inches across and the center circle is raised higher than the outer part. Its heavy. Has two old style screws holding it to the wood. I don't know much about it, the ones on the internet are all a little different.

      Thank you for the information, it was very informative. I never thought about what it meant, that is really cool and I didn't realize it was German. Thanks again.
