Ryder-30, W-2225 variety, Backward C type. Considered to be Rarity-6 with perhaps 30 known in all grades.
The distinctive and very rare variety with the C in AUCTORI inexplicably engraved backward, with this feature unusually bold and clear on this specimen (since the C is often partially or largely off the planchet on most survivors).
And this is a high grade survivor of this type, with golden and deeper brown color.
