51 millimeters. Pleasing olive-gray surfaces with pale-gold highlights. Light rub is noted, but the surfaces are still choice for the grade.
Julian lists several Exhibition award medals from the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic Association, and a later update by Rich Hartzog notes the existence of an 1888-dated medal. This 1887-dated piece for the Sixteenth Exhibition, however, has evaded publication in the Mint medal literature. A very scarce medal that should be of keen interest to specialists.
