The miniature sheet shows the wreck of the President Coolidge.
SS President Coolidge
was a US luxury ocean liner that was completed in 1931. She served as a troopship from December 1941 until October 1942, when she was sunk by mines in Espiritu Santo in the New Hebrides. Since 1983 the ship has been used for recreational diving. The wreck is one of the most desirable dives due to relatively shallow site, easy beach access, and visibility.
