Cast Iron logo plate

I have a large cast iron T&P logo plate. Don't have the measurements off hand as it is in storage. It is larger than the brass feedwater heater plates. Any ideas where this may have come from if it is,indeed, authentic? Thanks. gj

I guess I wasn't too specific about this piece. But I have come to find out from a fellow collector at the Gaithersburg MD show that there were a few of these around over the past few years so that most likely it is not of any historical significance. (In short, a fake.) Oh well. It's still pretty neat and looks good, and fake or not, pretty scarce.
