With some trivial rub on the highest area of relief, and a bit of discoloration. The fields are nicely reflective and free of impairment, however, and the overall eye appeal is fairly nice, all considered. A type that is very desirable in an early bronze striking as, according to Julian, the dies were not requested by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, and therefore no silver originals were struck. A later issue, under the Garfield administration, paired this obverse with a similar reverse, but without the date at the top. This is the most desirable variant, as it is the one intended for use during the Hayes administration. Even the finest collection of Indian Peace medals, with a focus on silver, is incomplete without this bronze striking.
