She was rediscovered in 2003, found about 100 miles southeast of Savannah, about 1,700 feet deep. The search and recovery effort was depicted in a National Geographic Society TV documentary Civil War Gold, and the bottles from this wreck are highlighted in the book Bottles from the Deep: Patent Medicines, Bitters, & Other Bottles from the Wreck of the Steamship Republic. More than 50,000 items were recovered from the site of the wreck, but fewer than 400 of those pieces were beer bottles. The bottle itself is 9" tall and about 3.5" wide. The custom hardwood stand has a 4" x 4" base and is 2.5 in height.
The bottle has some minor scratches and swirls, but not major cracks, scrapes, or stars. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, or if you would like to see additional photos. Thank you for looking and have a great day!
