12331. (photo) U. S. Lightship No. 6 Succonnesset Shoal c.1900. Close clear view of the Succonnesset Lightship on station in the north channel of Nantucket Sound, off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod. Nice view, b/w, 3 ¼” x 2 ¼”, quite close, shows good detail of a portion of the starboard side despite its small size, as she is moored on station. She served on this station from 1862 until 1912, when the station was discontinued. Rare view. (VG). $22.
