The magnetic cloud of November 17-18, 1975 is analyzed and it is shown that measurements of magnetic field and solar wind plasma are consistent with the interpretation that this magnetic cloud is a dual-polarity flux rope which consists of a core and an annular region. The core has a strong magnetic field; the annular region has a higher plasma density and opposite magnetic polarity.
