The flat shape of the plaque presents a technical challenge for the artist, because flat shapes are more difficult to enamel and fire properly. (F. Schneider, Oct 21, 2010)

There is a piece of green tape which reads "23" and two labels which read "12-24," and "2NY19/(illeg.) 75/71-4/65."

Multicolored enamels on a cast copper or bronze base.
