Spanish American War, "Reina Mercedes"

Recommended Posts

I saw another Span Am item here in this section and I remembered that I had this one... it's a letter opener, I think, and measures about 9".


The inscription on one side reads:

From The Spanish Cruiser Reina Mercedes Sunk Santiago Bay July 6, 1898


The other side: Justice John


From wikipedia:


During the Spanish American War, the ship Reina Mercedes served as a key defensive element of the Spanish defenses against the American blockade of Santiago Harbor in Cuba.
