. The reverse of this piece is a pun referring to the destruction of the CSS 'Alabama' off the coast of France. "Civic Grant for Alabama Claims Civis Londiniensis June 15 1877" and signed "I. F. W. Des". The 'Alabama' was a screw sloop-of-war built in Liverpool in 1862 for the Confederacy, and was used as a commerce raider. For two years it caused great damage to merchant vessels as it sailed the oceans, and by 1864 was the world's most famous naval vessel. In June 1864 it put into Cherbourg, France, and when it came out of port it was sunk by the USS 'Kearsarge'. The legal claims surrounding the CSS 'Alabama' were in the courts for over a decade.

An example of this piece described as white metal was in a PCAC Auction in December of 1991. I have seen no others and have not see a white metal example of the other two in the series.
