This article discusses how the Kinderhook plates remind one of the gold plates. They were metal plates clasped together with a ring with hieroglyphics imprinted upon them. They were taken to Joseph Smith to translate. He declared them to be genuine anti-Mormon literature and proclaimed them to be a hoax.
