Dies: as illustrated above. Deep golden tan surfaces throughout tempered with rich chestnut-red highlights. Sharp and appealing and struck to celebrate an explosion in Havana Harbor on February 15, 1898, that sent the battleship U.S.S. Maine to a watery grave and precipitated the United States into the Spanish-American War. The yellow press of the time insisted the explosion was caused by Spanish saboteurs, and the rest is history.
