Location is unknown. Could be off the coast of Japan
This is from a recent Ebay purchase.

I took a chance on this one as it looked rough in the posting.
It appeared to have some sort of water damage, like it was up against something wet(?)
Also it's share of scratches. I used BW filters to control the water stains & seems to have worked.
The Wisconsin is of the Iowa battleships class, including Missouri, New Jersey & Iowa
From her keel being laid til launched took two years.
Launched in 1944, her 3 turrets of 16 inch guns were fired in support of invasion forces at Okinawa & other island combat
