Plate Tax.

DID YOU KNOW that tax on silver was known as Plate Tax.
This tax was imposed on anyone who possessed 100 ounces
or more of silver plate; that is solid silver not Sheffield plate or
electroplated silver (these processes were not developed until
some time later). Records of this tax, naming the owners of the
silver, have been found in Treasury documents in the TNA.
