Near TOP POP, 43 certified and only three finer in 65. The obverse shows a picture of the Administration Building which is in contradiction to the obverse inscription which states BIRDSEYE VIEW OF THE WORLDS FAIR, which it is not. Chicago is misspelled on both the obverse and reverse dies. The reverse landing scene is similar to SH 6-106 and SH 6-108, but the engraving is different. Obverse microsignature BLUMENFIELD P.O.C. Blumenfield was selling these medals, as he was selling medals the following year at the 1894 Midwinter. It is unknown what the P.O.C. stands for, the Midwinter’s were signed BLUMENFIELD S.F.C.
