At the lower right on the face is an emblem showing trophies and the motto ANIMAS OPIBUSQUE PARATI (Prepared in spirit and resources). The intricately designed back has the motto DEUS PUGNAVIT ET DISSIPANTUR (God has fought and the opposition was dispersed). Noted with "Small Edge Splits and Tears; Minor Stains."
