As we get ready to step our mast, we are observing an old maritime tradition of putting coins on the mast step. Here we have a 1903 U.S. silver dollar, a Rhode Island quarter as part of the “State Quarter” collection with our RELIANCE on the back face, and a U.S. Naval Academy graduation coin. Bill’s grandson, Liam, graduated last May.
In addition, here are some more pictures of the RELIANCE model at the Frostbite Bash last month!
