Dear jferr75161,Wow thank you so much for hour info. That has enlightend me a lot. I sir served on the chicago cg-.11. NOW from what you have told me. That plate is a lot older f han you think. The 2nd Chicago sunk of Guadal canal and so did its silver plates. The 3rd and 4th Chicago's used the same set of silver which is engraved with scenes of Old Chicago's buildings on them and that set now sits in a military museum. So the plate you are selling is a lot older than WWII. Its even older than WWI and it would have belonged to the first chicago of the great white fleet. WOW wish I could afford it but the offers are too high for me now. Maybe you can pass that info on to the buyer later. Thank you.
