USS Arizona Silver Service
Made of Arizona-mined copper and silver, the 59 piece silver service was donated to the US Navy by the citizens of Arizona. It was used aboard the USS Arizona from 1919 until it was removed during a “strip ship” by the US Navy in early 1941 in preparation for a possible war with Japan, saving the service from destruction during the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Navy returned the silver service to the State of Arizona in 1953. Today, the silver service is on display at the Arizona Capitol Museum. .
