    This 'Ship's Wheel' is an antique relic and a piece of a true American
    Treasure. This item was made from the original metal removed from
    the USS Constitution during restoration in 1927. The ship, nicknamed
    'Old Ironsides' and fabricated by the Paul Revere Foundry, was built in
    1794. Named by President George Washington, the ship was launched
    in 1797. Today, the USS Constitution is anchored in Boston Harbor as
    a National Treasure.
