Description


Block of wood removed from the hull of the USS Constitution during the frigate's historic 1927 restoration, measuring 5.25 x 2.5 x 1.5, with the original bronze plate reading: "This material was taken from the original hull of the U.S. Frigate Constitution, Keel laid 1794, Rebuilding 1927." In fine condition. Untouched pieces of the original Constitution hull showing obvious wear from years of service are the most desirable and scarce of the relic items from the 1927 restoration. Most of the relics were repurposed souvenir items made from the salvaged material. This example is untouched and clearly shows the wear and punishment sustained by the ship's hull including an original nail above the bronze plate.
