Signed at the conclusion by President Hayes and countersigned by Secretary of Navy Richard W. Thompson. The blue seal affixed at the bottom remains intact. A mild overall block of toning from previous display, soiling to the bottom, and trivial brushing to Hayes's signature, otherwise fine condition.
