12332. (photo) U. S. Lightship No. 96 Cross Rip c.1950. Close clear view of the Cross Rip Lightship on station off the coast of Nantucket and Cape Cod. Nice view, b/w, 3 ¾” x 3 ¼”, clear and close, shows wonderful detail as she is moored on station despite its small size. LV-96 was built in 1914 in Muskegon, Michigan. She served on Cross Rip Station, north of Tuckernuck, from 1937 until 1954. Nice view. (VG+). $24.
