Brass Plaque

The brass plaque was placed by Sir Francis Drake to claim ownership of Nova Albion, and to found Drakeborough.


The brass plaque was nailed to a tree outside of the Money Bin on Killmotor Hill. Scrooge cut up the stump of the tree to use for firewood, discovering the plaque in the process.

The inscription on the plaque says:“Be it knowne to all bye these presents-- June 17, 1579: In the name of Queen Elizabeth of England, I take posession of this lande, Nova Albion, and do establish on this hill Drake Borough, now stated bye me..Francis Drake.”

Scrooge claims to have melted down the brass plaque to use in his crown, though in reality he is using it as a plate for pigeons that come by his office.
