The obverse shows female figures representing New York and New Jersey holding hands over the tunnel.  A contemporary car and truck are seen inside the tunnel.

The reverse is a Laurel Wreath with contains the inscription "To Commemorate the Opening of the Holland Tunnel November 12th 1927".  It is signed Tiffany & Co. at the bottom.

There is touch of rubbing wear at the highest points of the design and a tiny sot at about the 12 o';clock position on the reverse.  All in all, nothing particularly distracting.
