WWII USS New Jersey Battleship Plaque - w/ Actual Relic & COA - Ltd. Qtys.
This is a unique opportunity to own an actual piece of deck from the USS New Jersey BB-64 in a commemorative plaque. This relic was acquired directly from the source and has NEVER been in collectors’ circulation.
This 8” x 10” (20 x 25 cm) historical plaque combines this rare artifact, along with the story of the piece, and a beautifully detailed, engraved illustration created by artist Craig Tinder.
The most decorated battleship in United States Naval History, the USS New Jersey (BB-62) served 21 years of Active Service and was awarded 19 Battle and Campaign Stars for her contributions in 26 major engagements in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Lebanon, and the Persian Gulf. Having been decommissioned after World War II, she was called back into service multiple times to serve two tours in Korea (1950), Vietnam (1968), and the intervention in Lebanon (1983-84). Her last cruise ended in 1990 and she was eventually stricken from the Naval Vessel register. By 2000, she was transferred to the Camden Waterfront in New Jersey to fulfill her final mission as a museum ship.
The included relic is a piece of original deck from the Battleship USS New Jersey (BB-62). This specific deck piece was removed in 2015 near the stern on the starboard side during routine deck maintenance.
