On the very top is a long banner and an American flag. There are 2 white lifeboats handing from davits toward the stern and what looks like torpedoes and other cargo on the deck. Under the sea is a label with the following words: "USS Preble III 1901, Built for RV Cowles 1971 by Jack Verducci." It is sealed with a wooden stopper covered with red sealing wax.
