Thank you all (on behalf of Robert Aitken, the man who actually designed and sculpted the medal).

My great great grandmother attended that exposition in 1915 and I have some of her photographs and memorabilia from her visit. She did buy a copy of the $50 Pan Pac in bronze, but oh how I wish she had bought the gold example instead. I have it with her stuff in the SDB but should take it and the other stuff out and image them sometime.
