Your purchase supports ongoing operations and maintenance of Battleship NORTH CAROLINA and makes a difference in keeping the Showboat shipshape. The Battleship is self-supporting. No local, state or federal tax dollars support its operation or administration. It relies on admissions, sales, rentals, investments and donations.

Battle★Star Steel Silhouettes
Each steel piece in the Battle★Star Collection comes from the hull of Battleship NORTH CAROLINA and the material has not been altered in any way. This repurposed steel has been cut by a water jet by the artisans & technicians at Edwards/Wilmington–literally a few miles from the Battleship! Each piece is completely unique and is kept in its original condition from when it was removed and cut away from the Battleship.
Ideal for display on a mantle, bookcase or desk, each item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. These make wonderful & memorable gifts! Explore the online store to learn more.
