ARTIFACT: This is a World War II submarine launch tag for the USS Queenfish SS-393, launched November 30, 1943 at Portsmouth (NH) Naval Shipyard. Queenfish received six battle stars during World War II, but her war service was somewhat overshadowed when she mistakenly sank a relief boat that had been granted safe passage by the United States government. Travel through dense fog, coupled with neglect in sounding a foghorn to demonstrate its immunity brought about the demise of the Awa Maru at the hands of the Queenfish.

VINTAGE: Circa 1943.

SIZE: About 1-3/4 in width by 2-1/8" in height.

MATERIALS / CONSTRUCTION: Foiled card stock.

ATTACHMENT: Silk string.

MARKINGS: None.

ITEM NOTES: This is from a United States Navy collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. LBHX

CONDITION: 8- (Very Fine-Excellent): This tag shows minor wear, and the tag you receive will either be this one or one in very similar condition.

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