Pennsylvania Bicentennial Medal

There was an article in my club publication, The Clarion, about the circumstances surrounding a young collector acquiring a bronze Pennsylvania Bicentennial medal in 1976.  The article author let us know that in 1976, you could attain a free medal by visiting 5 of the 13 designated regions in Pennsylvania.  I thought the article was great so I had to obtain my own. 

The obverse depicts one of Washington's troops warming his hands over a fire on a cold Pennsylvania day, the reverse show our Pennsylvania Coat of Arms.  I think it's very attractive.
