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).

    Hello, today I found the same plate at a flee market. Have you found out something about this piece?

    I haven't found out anything new. I forgot to mention before that mine has a piece to allow you to hang it on the wall and I don't know if that piece is part of an original set. How much did you pay for this and where? USA? Was there a hanger with it? Thanks.

    I live in Sweden and found it on a local yard sale. I didnt pay much for it. Mine has also a hanger that it is mounted on so that it could hang on the wall. Off course I am (as you) interested in how rare it is. The link you posted says it's from Germany? And I also have found a Swedish blog that posts a photo of it, but no further info.

    Hi Chris,
    Thank you for the information. I am inclined to think now that either the ceramic or the printing (or both) was done in Sweden. Still mysterious. I have many relatives from the north to the south of your country. My mother is Swedish. I have yet to visit, but I intend to someday. Thanks again for your info.
