The Spokane Naval Trophy is visiting its namesake city for a short time.

The 100-year-old trophy is bestowed on the U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet ship that’s the “best in the business” in combat readiness, according to the Navy.

The trophy was created in Spokane using 400 ounces of silver and its estimated value today is more than $4 million. It will be on display Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Navy Operational Support Center, 5101 N. Assembly. Photo ID is required for entry.
