The plaque commonly displayed the name of the ship, as well as its class and shipyard of origin. Many later plaques also displayed the ship's official motto, plus a list of notable Starfleet officers involved in the assembly of the vessel.
After earlier being made to wait for quite some time by the Sheliak, Captain Picard took his time answering their hail, inspecting the ship's dedication plaque in 2366. (TNG: "The Ensigns of Command")
When USS Voyager found the USS Equinox in 2376, Captain Janeway noted that the Equinox's plaque had fallen, and advised that they should hang it back up. Similarly, after days of battling with the Equinox after they betrayed the Voyager crew, Voyager's dedication plaque fell down. Janeway noted that, after years of battles, it had never fallen down before, and in a symbolic gesture, they put it back "where it belonged." (VOY: "Equinox", "Equinox, Part II")
