A rare memento from the presidency of Franklin D Roosevelt, this pillow sham was from the U.S.S. Potomac Presidential Yacht, which is now a National Historic Monument.

Built in 1934, the 165-foot former Coast Guard cutter 'Electra' was converted to a U.S. Navy vessel in 1936, renamed the USS Potomac, and served as FDR's presidential yacht until his death in 1945.
