“The Wealth of a Nation is in the Strength of its People”

That’s what is engraved in a gentle arch of type on the large steel engraving plate. This is one of those antique hand-cut plates that we were going through a little while ago. I’d sure like to know its origin.
Underneath the type is a lighted torch flanked by scrollwork. And over the arch are nine engraved images of athletes in their sport: basketball, weightlifting, figure skating, tennis, rowing, football, baseball, diving and running.

Any ideas?
