The Liberty Torch

Inside the base of the Statue of Liberty in the New York Harbor, there is duplicate of the Liberty Torch. The Torch has been changed and replaced at least three times over the years. This version is preserved but no longer used. Apparently, the glass panel leaked and the leaks were causing damage to the statue and so the current torch was made and put in place.
