Struck by Moise, a San Francisco minter. This is the wide “E U R E K A” variety. Unlisted in the Hibler & Kappen reference book, this shares the same reverse as about a half-dozen other so-called dollars from the late 1890’s. There is an excellent article published on the Moise medals, authored by Hill Hyder and me, Jeff Shevlin. The link below will take you to the article which is listed on this website in the “Resources Tab”.
