Description, including signature and date
This model of the American Export-Isbrandtsen commercial ship, The Exchequer, must have been made by a crew member. The Exchequer was built in 1943 and was scrapped in Taiwan in 1970. It was part of the commercial shipping fleet of American Export-Isbrandtsen ships, headquartered in Greenwich, CT, and registered in New York. The model in the bottle is a good likeness of the real ship.
