Choice Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. 62.4mm. Rims 3.7 - 4.0mm thick. 1,406.8 gns. Another outstanding example of this very rare medal, one of just 17 that escaped the Mint's melting pots. Both sides are deep gray in color, a shade near charcoal. The surfaces are brightly reflective. Neatly holed at the top; original loop. Like the preceding, only minor handling marks. Patch of rust on the reverse rim at left as visible on the first. This size is known in silver originals and copper restrikes. Here is a second opportunity to acquire a medal that is both rarely offered for sale and is in remarkable condition.
