    James Monroe: A Very Rare and Important Large "Pewter Rim" Plaque. In this case, pewter rim is a bit of a misnomer, but, like the large Jackson in the Berman Collection, this piece falls within the category to which collectors have given that appellation. The rim is a brass like material rather than pewter; however, rather than a suspension loop at the top, it has the original loop on verso. These pewter rims were poorly sealed and, like many examples, this one has water stains. However, the staining is evenly distributed and not offensive. The glass may have been replaced, although it is of the correct thickness for the period. Considering the paucity of Monroe items of any kind and its importance within the continuum of presidential pewter rims, this must be considered one of the most significant objects in the Frent Collection. Diameter 92 mm.
