Ind. Gov't. - " Clinton County Courthouse Wears A 'New Crown'"

So reports Russ Kaspar of the Clinton County Daily News:

The Massachusetts State House Dome on Beacon Hill in Boston is gilded in 23 carat Gold (95.8% pure gold). The Clinton County Courthouse dome now has a “dressed up” new look and though the dome is not made of Gold, it is getting covered with a special paint that goes for about $300.00 dollars per gallon. * * *

At $300.00 per gallon, the paint should last for many many years, according to John Reid, owner of Pioneer Restoration, contracted to do repair and restoration work on the courthouse. This type of expensive paint is also used for certain kinds of aircraft, according to Reid.
