Lucille Ball I Love Lucy Danbury Mint Test Plate -rare For Sale
ONE OF THE RAREST AND HARDEST LUCY COLLECTIBLE TO FIND!
<p>BRAND NEW IN THE ORIGINAL BOX WITH ORIGINAL PACKAGING!!
<p>In 2003, Danbury Mint decided to design a gorgeous I Love Lucy Plate. They made 100 of the plates and released them into a test market by advertising it in the Sunday paper in selected U.S. cities. Well, obviously they did not pick the right cities or something, but they did not get a very good response and the plate was not put into production and retired.
<P>This plate is nothing less than INCREDIBLE!! It is larger than most collector's plates as it measures 12" in diameter. Pictures include 14 different famous scenes from I Love Lucy. Of course, the center picture is of the most famous scenefrom I Love Lucy where Lucy Ricardo is the "Vitameatavegamin Girl". Also included with the plate is a beautiful wooden plate stand and a CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY from the Danbury Mint. It is numbered both on the back of the plate and the corresponding COA.
<P>For my own private collection, I tried for several years to acquire this plate. Several have been sale off over the years at I Love Lucy Conventions in Jamestown, NY. I attended 4 different sales in Jamestown between 2003-2005 and one of these plates was saleed off each time. It NEVER sold for less than $2000-$2500. I have seen other collector's part with their plate for similar pricing through private sales and even on . So there is the rarity of this plate and the obvious demand for it with collector's.
<P>Here is a RARE and DIFFICULT ITEM to find. If you are looking for that unique Gift.....this is it. Guaranteed excitement for that special Lucy fan in your life. Will only increase in value as it ages! You will not be disappointed in any way with this plate! It is gorgeous in color, incredible in size, and a fabulous item to own.
