On the stock of the anchor the monogram of 'T.S' (Thomas Simon). Reverse: Naval engagement; in the foreground a ship sinking, on the stern of which is the artist's name, 'SIMON', and on the bows of another 'T.S.', his initials. With a border of laurel leaves on both sides. Presented to junior flag officers. The only other example known to exist is in the British Museum. Four originally struck with chains.
