I have four white plates that were part of a bicentennial commemorative project of the General Federation of Women's Clubs. Is their any information on these plates concerning their history and value?

Four plates belong to the Bicentennial set, which commemorates our nation's early history. They were commissioned by GFWC, and the Federation released one new plate each year for four consecutive years (1973-1976). The overarching theme of the plate set is "Spirit of '76" and each plate depicts one of the four major movements in the American Revolution: "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death," "Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness," "In God We Trust," and "Proclaim Liberty throughout the land." The molds for the plates were publicly destroyed on July 4, 1976, in a ceremony at Independence Hall.
