The following was observed as it is displayed in the showcase: at the back side of the base of the trophy there are three nubs (where an adornment may have been?, see photo 7.03); the laurel band below the figure of William Penn extends downward slightly (as evident in photos 7.13 and 7.14); and the interior rim of the cover is dented in several areas, visible only when the cover is removed (see photos 7.14 and 7.17); the original turned wood pedestal base shows wear.
