Original text on model:
"[Blank]" (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)
"Possibly newly identified model. Compare fin keel model 317 and model 1532. They share considerable similarities in terms of shape. Model 317 was, among others, used for #425s Wee Winn which was 23' 10" LOA. Model 1532, at a scale of 1:16, would be for a vessel of 23' 6" LOA. But note that both bow and stern of Model 1532 are damaged and the model as designed may have been slightly longer. Model 1532 may have been a preliminary model for Wee Winn."
