These are both original items from the Ships. The ashtrays are in excellent condition for it s 70+ years on earth or sea as it may be. The  The photo of the ship and of Truman on the ship and of Truman's Desk are for historical reference only.

What makes these items of particular historical reference is not only have they been used on a Official Presidential yacht during the Term of Several Presidents but Truman actual kept one of the "USS Williamsburg"  and "USS Sequoia" round nickel plated ashtrays on his desk in The Oval office. You can now see them displayed at the Truman Library's replica of President Truman's Oval Office. Now you can own a piece of history that not only might have been used by both President Truman and President Eisenhower and their guests. Also you can own one of the same items that meant enough to President Truman to take with him to The Oval Office and it was thought important enough by political historians to put them up for public display at Truman's Presidential Library

In the last 2 photos I have added you can see both the round nickel plated Williamsburg ashtray but also the matching Sequoia astray listed as being on Truman's desk while he was President.
