Trails attached at bottom, drawn up in a spiral to point of carination, tooled into a festoon pattern with thirteen upward strokes, wound round again in spiral to top of body, with white trail ending in a backward loop. Broken around top of neck with almost half of rim-disk missing, and one trail completely weathered, leaving only indentation in body; dulling, severe pitting and weathering, and faint iridescence.
