Subject:Re: Identifying Octagon Platter From 1830's

Good morning Dan and thank you very much for sharing your amazing knowledge! Very impressive and I must say you pointed me in directions I never would have explored. After a few hours of research on Google, I found that there seems to be a nearly endless number of patterns, all similar to the next, in certain ways. I will continue to try and fine an exact match to the pattern on my piece, but out of curiosity, I paid just shy of $80 for the Platter at auction. Do you by chance, think I did OK, or overpaid? I just thought with the beautiful condition it is in, the size, which by the way is roughly 12" x 9.5" and the fact that it an octagon shaped platter, I had to bid.
Thanks again for all your wonderful knowledge.
