Pueblo of Acoma Tribe: Obverse #2, with the rifle removed due to its weak artistry and confusing suggestion of a sloped plane for the seated soldier. Reverse #2, with the request for careful detailing to assure the legibility of the ring of numerous design elements overlapping the central field edge.
Hopi Tribe: Obverse #4, with the text "U.S. Army" replaced by "A Code Never Broken" as in alternative #1. Reverse #3, as the simplest design.
Oneida Nation: Obverse #3, due to the sense of movement and the profile pose, with the request to remove the eagle feathers as a confusing design element. Reverse #3, with the oval motif remove, and a request for careful study of the sculptural treatment of the animal prints (graphically rendered as black or white in the submitted drawings).
Ponca Tribe: Obverse #4, with the removal of the circular motif of radio waves and the secondary soldier at the far lower left; the remaining portraits should also be adjusted so that the soldier's helmet does not obscure Chief White Eagle's chin. Reverse #1, the only submitted alternative, as a clear and simple design.
Tonto Apache Tribe: Obverse #1, due to the sense of movement, the profile pose, and the clear two–figure composition. Reverse #1, as the simplest and most dramatic of the alternatives.
White Mountain Apache Tribe: Obverse #3, due to the interesting composition incorporating a background silhouette portrait, with a request for further refinement of the foreground soldier's bent leg. Reverse #1, the only submitted alternative, with a request to slightly reduce the size of the emblem within the textured field to improve the clarity of this complex composition.
