U.S.S. Holland Name Plate

For decades Holland labored to produce a workable engine-powered submarine. Success finally came in 1898 when Holland, which revolutionized undersea warfare. The Navy purchased and commissioned the boat in 1900 after it passed a rigorous set of tests. The boat served as a training craft during her active career. Struck from the register in 1910, she was sold for scrap in 1913. The name plate was removed in 1930 when Holland was finally broken up in a Philadelphia scrap yard.
