Any ideas or findings? I believe it is a minesweeper ship for starters. Your help is much appreciated.

Just a guess but you might try looking up USS Candid.

Does not look like the USS Candid (AM-154), but I saw where you are coming from Ealdwita.

I thought it could have been this ship also but I couldn't match the structure or the kill mark history with it. Its been a puzzle to even identify the type of ship it is regardless of the name.

Leccy, are you suggesting the photo you posted could be of the ship I have up or is it the USS Candid? Its been hard finding the exact kill mark history on any of the ships i thought could be it.
