#413 - USS Constitution Estimate: $500+

Block of wood removed from the hull of the USS Constitution during the frigate's historic 1927 restoration, measuring 4.75 x 4.5 x .75, 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." Plaque to upper portion features an embossed image of the three-masted heavy frigate, with raised text: "Old Ironsides, Launched 1797, 1804 Tripoli, 1812 Guerriere Java, 1815 Cyane Levant, U.S. Frigate Constitution." In fine condition. Untouched pieces of the original Constitution hull showing wear from years of service are the most desirable and scarce of the relic items from the 1927 restoration, given that most of the relics were repurposed souvenir items made from the salvaged material. This example is untouched and displays wear sustained by the ship's hull.
