Danbury Mint

New in the box and in perfect condition, is this rare sculpture of the Marblehead Light Lighthouse in Baypoint , Ohio . Marblehead Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse in continuous operation on the Great Lakes, has guided sailors safely along the rocky shores of Marblehead Peninsula since 1822. In 1819, the fifteenth U. S. Congress recognized the need for navigational aides along the Great Lakes, and set aside $5,000 for construction of a light tower at the entrance to Sandusky Bay . Contractor William Kelly built the 50-foot tower of native limestone on the tip of the Marblehead Peninsula . The base of the tower is 25 feet in diameter, with walls five feet thick. It narrows to twelve feet at the top with two-foot thick walls.

This collectable lighthouse is perfect for any collector or investor. The fine intricate work and hand painting make this piece a beauty to behold. Retailing for $80+, this light house can you yours for a fraction of that cost. This lighthouse comes in its original box, with packaging.
