Authentic USS ARIZONA battleship deck wood and Ford Island "hallowed ground" soil artifacts matted and framed in a handsome LIMITED EDITION 8" x 12" Riker case display. 

Irregularly shaped appx. 1.5" x 1.5" authentic teak deck wood artifact is cut from a larger piece recovered by a Navy salvage team shortly after the ARIZONA sank. The Navy had been clearing debris from around the sunken battleship in preparation for turning it into a war memorial. 
During the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the ARIZONA was bombed. After a bomb detonated in a powder magazine, the battleship exploded violently and sank, with the loss of 1,177 officers and crewmen. Unlike many of the other ships sunk or damaged that day, Arizona was irreparably damaged by the force of the magazine explosion. 
Today, the wreckage of the ARIZONA still lies at the bottom of the Pearl Harbor lagoon. A total of 1,177 men died on board, the greatest single death toll ever on a US warship. Only 229 bodies were recovered. The rest remain entombed in the wreckage.
FORD ISLAND was at the center of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the U.S. Pacific Fleet by the Japanese on December 7, and was later designated a National Historic Landmark as well as one of the United States' most-endangered historic sites.
Relics and artifacts from the USS ARIZONA, Pearl Harbor and Ford Island are exceptionally scarce. Don't miss your once-in-a-lifetime chance to own an original, investment-quality historic artifact that will be treasured for generations.
