K2439 Medal made from the Wreck of the S.S. Beaver

$149.00

The Beaver was a steamer wrecked at Vancouver British Columbia in 1892 and the medal was made from salvage from the ship. It notes on the medal the Santa Maria but I cannot ascertain any relationship between Columbus' flag ship and the wrecked ship, other than it was lost 400 years after Columbus sailed to America. We have seen an example of this medal previously in a Columbian collection. Historically, it is interesting in maritime history.
