Hi Fritz,
You can upload an image to your post via your confirmation email. Otherwise you could repost the link to the photo for us again as we can't see from the one you've posted here in the comments.

Hi Fritz,
Is your plaque the one depicted in the top right corner of the photo?

I've updated your post to include the image you provided.
Really awesome to see.

You have something here that would appeal to many.
1/ It's from a major steel company that is now defunct.
2/ It's a part of the famous U.S.S. Eldorado.
3/ (most importantly) It's actually depicted with Lieutenant General Hollamd M. Smith, Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal, Rear Admiral Harry W. Hill and Vice Admiral Richmond K. Turner, as they watch the invasion of Iwo Jima.

I suspect a LOT of WWII buffs would go crazy for your plaque. Especially Iwo Jima buffs.

I couldn't tell you myself what it could be worth. But maybe someone else will be able to help, or even make you an offer right here :)

Anyways, a Great piece of memorabilia.
Thanks for sharing.
