Would you like to own a very unique piece of history? If so, you can bid in an auction for a piece from the luxury passenger liner built in 1952 for the United States Line. The ship is the largest ocean liner constructed entirely in the US, the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction, and, even in her retirement, retains the record of the passenger liner crossing the Atlantic Ocean in regular service with the record highest speed.
The SS United States Conservancy is looking to sell a massive propeller sitting on its deck in Philadelphia. The purchaser will be responsible for removing and transporting the four-blade, 18-foot diameter, 60,000-pound propeller.

If you win the auction, please let me know where you will be exhibiting it, OK?
