Vintage Litho of USS Constitution by Gordon Grant. Vintage original litho dated 1927, 19" x 22", published by direction of the National Committee "Save Old Ironsides" under authority granted by act of Congress, 1927. This litho was instrumental in raising the nearly $750,000 needed at that time to restore the USS Constitution to its former glory. Of course, further restoration has occurred over the decades, but this initial restoration from private sources saved the historic vessel from becoming target practice. In frame, 23" x 26½", and in excellent condition.
Estimated Value $500 - 700.
Ex. The Claude Harkins Collection of Americana.

Realized $312
