This bright and shiny 7 1/4" plate carries the Nebraska motto "Equality Before the Law" and includes themes of transportation, industry, settlement and agriculture. A railroad train steams across the background, with mountains in the distance. A steamboat plies the waters of the Missouri River. A simple cabin and sheaves of harvested wheat portray the importance of settlers and agriculture. A blacksmith works at his anvil in the foreground.
The plate has only light utensil marks and was made in 1960.
