You clazy!

What does it say on it!?

I can tell you where to find the info, probably here at their Liberty Missouri museum!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

The LDS has records on just about everything!. Here's their website: http://www!.familysearch!.org/eng/default!.!.!.!.
PPIE of 1915 is the Panama Pacific International Exposition held in San Fransisco Feb-Dec 1915!. It was the expo to end all expos!. And was paid for mostly by Californians!. It served as a showcase for San Fransisco which had been virtually destroyed 13 years prior!.
A number of plaques, coins and medals for the PPIE were made!. Is it of a really pitiful cowboy on his equally pitiful horse!?Www@QuestionHome@Com

Open a window and yell out, "YO, MORMONS! A LITTLE HELP ON A PLAQUE!!!"

Kidding!. That wouldn't work unless you were in Wyoming or had really strong lungs!.

The PPIE was the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, wasn't it!? Why do you think the Mormons will know more about it than, oh I don't know, the California State Archives in Sacramento!? It was in San Francisco, after all!.

There are also antiques collectors who specialize in this kind of trinket!. Do a google search on the PPIE and see where that leads!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Try ringing the temple or your nearest mormon church, they would try and help you out all they can!. Thems nice people :)Www@QuestionHome@Com
