38 millimeters. A wonderfully original specimen, both sides are adorned with iridescent charcoal-blue and pinkish-apricot toning. The most vivid colors are confined to the central obverse, where remnants of a few faint fingerprints are also noted for accuracy. Sharply struck with glittering mint reflectivity and fairly heavy hairlining to both sides.
This medal comes with the original felt-lined case and protective sleeve, both of which grade EF.
