Hello,my name is***** am a certified appraiser and would be happy to help you. I can see one photo on my end of the top looking down the plate appears to be broken and dinged badly If you have other photos could you upload them by clicking on the file upload button and following the prompts please. What are the measurements of the plate also measuring across.

Hello, thank you for the photos they did help greatly. This is a Japanese military motif of Samurai warriors. It does appear to be copper and these were produced during the 1960s. The value in the condition it is would be 30-35.00 It would not be worth any more if you were to take it in to have it repaired. It would be best to sell as is with all the pieces together. These were decorative in homes during the 1970s.
