5669mlkplaquea.jpg (73170 bytes) 5669mlkplaqueb.jpg (72582 bytes) 5669mlkplaquec.jpg (116880 bytes) 5669mlkplaqued.jpg (95284 bytes) 5669mlkplaquee.jpg (26376 bytes) Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. brass and bronze plaque. On the face it says "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 1929-1968 I Have a Dream" - On the back "Copyright 1968 Tiimberlake Trading Co. Greensboro, NC. Name and image of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. copyright Estate of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, All Rights reserved." also marked Korea where it was made. it appears to be made of two metals, brass on the outer edge, with a bronze center. Heavy due to the thicker bronze in the middle. Pierced for hanging. Right now it has string, I would replace that with wire. If you are looking at this wonderful plaque, then I am sure you are aware of just how central Reverend Dr. King was to the Civil Rights Movement, and probably know the text of the "I have a dream" speech better than I do. A great way to remember, commemorate, and celebrate the life of Dr. King in your home, church, or business, and make sure all remember him. 11 1/4 inches, a few light scratches, some light tarnish. Would polish beautifully if the owner chose to do so, at least the smooth portion, but I would let it age as the patina gives it dignity. $49.50 item #5669
