    I have recently purchased a Reco Presentation plate titled, "First Strike" in "In the Eye of the Storm" series. The plate is 8.25" in diameter and its number is: 286FS. It also reads: "an authentic original in the limited edition of In The Eye of The Storm. Painted by Wes Lowe, this edition was apparently limited to a 120 day firing period. If someone has a rough idea as to how many of these plates were made I would greatly appreciate the feedback,
    Thanks again.

    Hello and welcome to the board.
    I can't help with how many plates may have been made.

    There are people such as yourself who still buy plates, because they like them and want to hang them. Or maybe because they fit in with other items in a collection.

    However, for the most part collector plates were a marketing ploy using the "collector" term to entice people to buy. People were led to believe that the values would go up. Overall most collector plates have no great value.

    Having said that, there are still a few plates that can bring 20-30 dollars a plate. I sold one particular plate for $65.

    The one you purchased is very nicely done. Don't think I have seen any from that series. I can see where it would have appeal, and I would probably give it a good price.

    When buying plates, don't be fooled by the "limited edition". Buy a plate because you like it, will enjoy it, and it is a price you are willing to pay. Don't buy a plate because it might increase in value.

    They made thousands of these over a 4 month period...maybe tens of thousands.
    Desert Storm was popular at first...but that wore off real fast.
    If you're a fighter jet fan, it's very nice...but it's value is less than what you paid for it.

    How do you know that?
    He didn't state what he paid for it.

    The value is what he is willing to pay to enjoy it.

    because we've talked about collector plates here...a lot !
    You , yourself say...."Overall most collector plates have no great value."
    The plate is from 1991.....from a war .....that God bless the Vets.....no one else wants to remember.
    The OP doesn't show the original box.....& doesn't say it came from a yard sale for $10.....it has no American flags...and it's got a lovely Mosque .....:rolleyes:

    So,,,that's how I know that !

    Yes, collector plates and the value depends hugely on the subject and it’s inherent interest.
    In my market, I’d be lucky to get $10 for this.

    I'd price it higher. But our clientele may be different.

    Oh, absolutely.
    I’m in Australia, and anything Aboriginal or Outback does okay, in plates.
    Oddly, any plates with Native American motifs also do well.

    Collectors china overall is very soft in our market.
