Reverse: "Discovery of America" around rim at top, with scene of landing "October 1492". At bottom pictures "Landing of the Pilgrims" "Dec. 1620".

(Note: Eglit states this medal has a reeded edge, but this one has a smooth edge.) Size: 2 1/4" diameter. Condition: Extremely Fine with heavy toning overall.
