**Sold *** The North Carolina was a WW2 battleship. These early battle ships had wooden decking. This wood is from the U.S.S. North Carolina. BB 55 This is easily documented with an internet search. The custom box was designed by me and laser engraved at the shop. In this lot which unfortunately I do not have a certificate of authenticity for, you will get the box, 3 cut blanks, and a block of the decking which will yield 6 more standard pen blanks for a total of 9 blanks. The second photo is a pen I made and left natural for the historical value. It is not included in the sale. $90 mailed in the U.S.
When the keel of NORTH CAROLINA was laid in October of 1937 at the New York Navy Yard, Brooklyn, New York, she was the first battleship to be constructed
