Book of Mormon Plate with Stand
This plate is approximately the same size as one of the actual gold plates Joseph Smith used to translate the Book of Mormon. It is believed the characters on this replica were written by Joseph Smith directly from the plates he unearthed to show their authenticity to scholars. The most important scholar was Charles Anthon, an acclaimed classicist at Columbia College. Therefore these symbols became known as the “Anthon Characters". This item comes as a set with the display stand.
