I have the same plate as depicted above, the 50th anniversary plate. Included with the plate is a form letter idnetifying the plate as being presented to the employees of the Hershey family as a momento of the occasion. Also included is a wall hanger for displaying the plate. This item is in the original box with a small Hershey 50th anniversary seal on the lower left front of the box.
I don't think there's a huge market in these. They were produced in large numbers. I found some of the Hershey Commemorative plates on eBay, but not from the 50s. The ones on eBay are advertised for $5-$15, although most don't receive any bids.
i have a simular plate. My plate is of the Clara Barton school house Bordentown N.J. its drawn by the same artist as your plate. It"s a limited edition from 1956.It also is fired by L.Elkinton Larzelere. Are they worth anything?? How can I find out. Any information would be greatly appriciated . thank you
