Near TOP POP, only one graded finer in 67. Both the Protestant and the Catholic versions are found paired with the same and with different reverse dies. Obverse is the Protestant version of the Lord’s Prayer. Microscopic 57-C etched on the reverse at the bottom above the delta, some die varieties do not have the 57-C. Struck by Los Angeles Rubber Stamp Company, this reverse die was also used for SH 23-8 and 23-10. Found with both a coin and medal orientation. A similar Anillo restrike reverse variety is not cataloged here because it is too small at 25.86mm.
