Product Description

A beautiful 1.75-inch hand-painted brass coin honoring the USS S-5 SS-110 lost September 1, 1920, when a practice dive went wrong, and she sank bow-first, with her stern showing above the water. In a dramatic adventure, her exhausted crew was rescued during the next few days. Salvage attempts were unsuccessful, S-5 settled to the bottom and was abandoned.
