U.S. Fleet Recaptures the
Birthplace of Liberty

July, 1934

The Atlantic Fleet once spent some summers in Provincetown, Massachusetts. This souvenir coin celebrates its 1934 visit, and connects it to the signing there of the Mayflower Compact in 1620. The front reads “U.S. Fleet recaptures the birthplace of liberty, July 1934” with an image of a battleship in Cape Cod Bay. The back reads “Compact Nov. 11, 1620, birthplace of American liberty, Town of Provincetown incorporated 1727, Precinct of Cape Cod 1714”
