Question on Numbers

Posting Number 3096   Date: 12/07/18     Return to Posting List

Q. Alan, Really enjoying the plaque info. Is there any accounting of the numbers produced of each one or are there all one of a kind? Thanks. Regards, Jeremy Hayes

A. Jeremy, We know that 350 Edison plaques were commissioned for the opening of the Ford Museum. The line drawings in Gardner's text, see for example p. 208, were production pieces and perhaps there are factory records. Perhaps someone with access to these records might see if the number of pieces produced are indicated. Finally, many plaques are experimental or cire perdue. These could range from one of a kind or perhaps as many as four or five. Don't know that there are any records on this.
