Shipwreck Paper Money: SS Andrea Doria, sunk in 1956 off Nantucket 

 

The SS Andrea Doria was an Italian luxury liner operated by the Italian Line from 1953 to 1956. During her three years of service, she had many transatlantic voyages and became popular with passengers for her luxury accommodations and quick speed. On the night of July 25, 1956, the Andrea Doria collided with the MS Stockholm, a Swedish American Line passenger liner, while travelling through heavy fog. The Stockholm's bow penetrated the Andrea Doria's starboard side, leaving a gaping hole. However, safety measures kept the Andrea Doria afloat for 11 hours, long enough for the survivors to evacuate. All together, 46 people died aboard the Andrea Doria while 6 crew members of the Stockholm were killed.

Divers descended upon the wreck just a day after its sinking to find it lying on its starboard side at a depth of about 250 feet, far too deep for recreational diving. Since then, through advances in diving equipment, technical divers are able to reach the wreck. However, heavy currents, silt clouds and the depth still make the Andrea Doria a difficult wreck to dive, earning it the nickname "the Mount Everest of wreck diving." Regardless, the allure of the ship's luxury and artifacts still on board bring divers back again and again.
