ARTIFACT: This is a rare early 1960s painted resin plaque from Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (Portsmouth, New Hampshire/Kittery, Maine) for the USS Abraham Lincoln SSN-602. The Abraham Lincoln was launched May 14, 1960 and after testing in the United States, transferred to Holy Loch, Scotland. She stayed in Scotland for four years except for a brief time when the Cuban Missile Crisis erupted in October 1962. The ship was in an upkeep period when she received orders to deploy, and proceeded to the Caribbean for a successful 65-day patrol. She served into the early 1980s.

VINTAGE: Circa early 1960s.

SIZE: Approximately 8-1/2" in height and 7-1/2" in width and 11/16" in depth.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Painted resin.

ATTACHMENT: None.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Navy collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VAJX12 LAFEX2/12 SLAAEX7/16 SABEX04/20

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): The plaque has only a few very small spots of wear where paint has come away and has retained its vibrant coloring.

GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
