Outstanding, authentic WWII US Navy Liberty Ship 8-spoke helms wheel. Features a double band of inlaid wood, solid brass hub and king-spoke handle. Measures 42 inches in diameter from tip to tip and weighs a hefty 40 pounds. Appears to have been refinished at some point in its history.
The last two pictures below were taken aboard US Navy liberty ships. The first is from the steering station of the USS John Brown. The second a WWII era image of a sailor at the helm.
