Now here's something you won't see
This is a ring cut from one of the USS Missouri's original 16 inch turrets. A very special thanks to Ralf Alison for donating the funds to purchase this great artifact and donated it to the Estrella Warbirds Museum. It was on deck of "The Mighty Mo", the USS Missouri, that the Japanese surrendered at the end of WWII. The USS Missouri saw action during WWII, the Korean Conflict, retired in 1953, then reactivated in 1990 to serve in the Gulf War. It has since re-retired and serves as a Museum Ship in Pearl Harbor.
