As a former soldier in the 2nd, I can attest to the plethora of regimental beer mugs, ash trays, jackets and other nic-nacs made by local craftsmen for the regiment and its soldiers.
Have never seen the plate but the 2nd was a Constabulary regiment until 1948 and around 1957 returned to the U.S. before being posted again to Germany around 1960. That leaves 48-57 and 60-91 for a plate to be made.
