Near TOP POP, the finest is 64. Obverse features a high relief Jet Airplane “A NEW ERA BEGINS” above. Reverse is the American Airlines emblem. NGC holder states “Polished as Made”, because all of these medals were polished after striking to simulate Proof Surfaces. It took quite a few years before NGC would give these medals high grades, as they are all hairlined and appear to be cleaned, but since that is how they were all made, NGC now grades them accordingly. Struck in German-Silver.
