Betts-610 variety, struck in White Metal with a copper plug.  Dies by Johann Matthias Reich (father of John Reich).

An extremely cool and very ambitious piece, with Peace and Plenty standing over the warrior Mars beneath "Etat Pax" (State of Peace) on one side, and a Liberty Cap-holding personification of America on the other greeting Mrs. Europe, surrounded by the arms of Germany, France, England, and Spain with the battles at Port Mahon and Gibraltar in the background and the Eye of Providence watching it allPhew.  I'm exhausted.

The piece itself is fresh and lustrous and looks better than 63 to this author.
