Just wondering if anyone knows if this is a steam engine serial number plate and if they can identify the make by the style of tag? Thanks

I would guess it to be from an early Frick engine. Others may guess it to be from another maker.

Joel I'm going to disagree with David. That looks like an early Case tag from a center crank. This is a picture of one I've seen personally. Maybe Glenn G. or Colin can Comment more on it.

That engine number would have been used in 1886 so it is an oldy.
