SS United States Artifacts


Posted on

It has recently come to our attention that a rumor has been started that we are selling off pieces of the SS United States that we have received from Dr. Sarah Forbes, so I would like to this opportunity to address the issue.  I will state flat out that we are NOT selling items from the SS United States on eBay and we have no plans to do so.  I’m not sure how this rumor began, but it is my guess that someone saw a SS United States poster that our eBay account, Maritimesales, sold at the end of March.



What we sell on eBay are duplicate posters.  We already have this poster in the collection and it would do us no good to have a second copy.  While we would usually send posters this popular and valuable to auction, we decided to list this one on eBay because it was in horrible shape, more so than you can see from the image.  We only sell items on eBay that have a low or unknown value.  The money made from the eBay auctions go back to the collection, either to purchase new objects or care for those already in the collection.

If anybody has any questions or concerns about the SS United States collection, please leave us a message or contact us at [email protected].  Again, we are NOT selling items from SS United States and have no plans to do so.

  1. My Sister in law has decided to sell the Starboard running light, off the United States. It was purchased many years back from a dealer in Maryland by her husband (my brother). He has passed on and I am trying to get her the best price I can for it, and would appreciate if you could furnish what value you feel it may be worth. The light is in excellent condition, and further information can be forthcoming.
    Sincerely, Glen Ellison
