Replacements, Ltd. extends exhibit of historic Battleship Silver

GREENSBORO, N.C., May 18, 2007 – As the time to honor those who served our country approaches with Memorial Day,  Replacements, Ltd. is thrilled to announce its exhibit of historic Battleship Silver will be extended through March 2008. 

“We’re truly honored that the Battleship North Carolina chose us to display their silver in our museum,” says Replacements, Ltd.’s showroom/museum manager Keith Winkler.  “Not only are these beautiful, one of a kind pieces, the setting is also a monument to the thousands of North Carolinians from each of the armed services who gave their lives in service to their country.”

The North Carolina General Assembly commissioned the silver service in 1907 to use on the original U.S.S. North Carolina. The intricate 100 piece set served officers on board the Armored Cruiser North Carolina from 1908-1920, the U.S.S. Raleigh from 1928-1930, and the Battleship North Carolina from 1941 until 1947.  The setting consists of five different sterling silver services for tea, water, wine, punch, and cigars, and features  the North Carolina State Seal and  engravings of the state capital.

Replacements, Ltd.’s museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is conveniently located between Greensboro and Burlington, NC, at exit 132 off  Interstate 85/40.
