Store Card Promoting Rock Solid Varnish

$80.00

It's hard not to say "this is an unusual medal" when unusual is the usual at the World's ColumbianExposition. The De Colyer rock Varnish doesn't offer superlatives or descriptions on the medal, but the "Rock" name apparently says it all, as does the obverse of the medal--no line of type or connection of the product to the image of the Rock of Gibralter. Apparently is was felt that the image of Gibralter (I do believe the only one on 1,000+ Columbian Medals) would get the message across.
