I think we need to pull some bits off the USS Arizona and auction them on ebay.

Back in June, a Uruguay court ordered that the eagle must be sold within 90 days but I can't find any further information regarding any auction or the result being 600k.

It's odd, there are a lot of mentions on the internet that it MUST be auctioned off but cant find a single mention of an actual auction being planned or having happened.

Now there should be somewhere a pretty happy Kriegsmarine collector who saved this historical object from the destruction.

Does anyone know what type of metal it would have been constructed of?

Hello, if I had occasion to be at that time, and then in other dives, but, I'm not a diver, just, it was because it took about 2 to 3 months to take out, about 180 rivets, from inside the ship .
The Graf Spee, is despite what the common people believe, an easy dive, by the few meters, and is completely wrong, more than 10 professional divers have died, and many more looters in the underground have run with that good luck too .....
A ship, which undoubtedly continues to give much to talk about ....
