Some light spotting, but deep chocolate brown and pleasing. Small, fresh digs are noted on the edge, but do not impair the visual appeal of either the obverse or reverse. A very scarce product of the late 19th century, using the reverse of Charles Cushing Wright's mid-19th century Signing Ceremony medal, paired with a new reverse featuring the 59 signatures applied to the Declaration. The first mention of this we are aware of was the Chapman Brothers' 1884 Thomas Warner sale. Quite scarce, and impressive. As John Kraljevich astutely commented in his recent offering of an example, "Since this medal exists only as an electrotype, it is not fair to class this as a copy, or throw it on the scrapheap with other 19th century electrotypes: electrotyping, instead of striking or casting, was simply the process used to produce this very interesting, elusive medal."
