Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: “Peanut Ear”
Coin: 1913-P T-2 (ChoiceXF)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     Although we do not know this artist by name, we have nicknamed him 揚eanut Ear because of the shape of the subject抯 ear. Other confirming features are: the rough-textured hat, the low style hatband, the hair under the forward hat brim, the curly hair, beard, and moustache, and the 揤 collar.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     The profile was unaltered. The field was dressed; LIBERTY remains. This is an attractive carving done on a high grade circulated 1913 nickel.

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: 1913-D T-1 (F-VF)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     This is a very nice carving, especially the hat which has a nice bow and a curled hat brim, all with accent lines. The collar and the lapel were nicely (delicately) carved. The subject has small ear, an altered profile, and modified lips. The hair, beard, and moustache were probably knife-punched. The coin was holed at 11 o抍lock.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     This was carved by an experienced artist who exhibited nice detail throughout the carving. The field was well-dressed and the profile was altered, especially at the nose. This carving has a nice eye-appeal.

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: ND-D T-2 (AG-G)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     The coin has a golden hue. This is the (right) plate coin on page 20 in the OHNS Guidebook. The profile was altered and a deep trough for the hatband. The hair, beard, moustache, and eye were carved. No ear is visible. The collar and lapel were well done. Field was well dressed, including most of LIBERTY.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     The carving was done on a well worn nickel grading, in my opinion, AG. The collar and lapel were well-done. The nose was altered to an ethnic nose. The beard and hair were nicely carved.

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: 1914-P (XF-ChoiceXF)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     Much chisel work was done on this coin (neck, field). Straight line cuts were used for the beard, hair, moustache, and eyebrow. The nose (bridge) was slightly modified; squint lines appear at the back of the eye, and there is what appears to be a scar on the cheek under the eye.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     The field was well dressed and the subject was nicely carved with good eye appeal. The hat is worn high on the head with a full view of LIBERTY in front. The scar (intentionally done) is on the upper cheek below the eye. Maybe we can call this carving 搒car face!

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: ND-D T-2 (G)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     The 搘iggle cut was used for the hair, beard, and moustache, covering about 80% of the head. A very small 揋 for the ear low on the head. The derby has a low crown. A 搇iner tool was used on the crown, field, and the coat. The profile was unaltered, but outlined.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     A little too much use of the 搇iner tool in my opinion; also, too much hair on the face and head. The lines that created the collar appear to be too long.

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: 1937-D (VG)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     Bold carving lines were used on the hat and the eye. Wiggle art was used on the hair and some of the beard and moustache with some carved areas. The subject has an altered profile and a large eye with an eyebrow. Portions of the Indian抯 feathers and the ties on the braids were not dressed off. The lips were altered.
Second Examiner: Farnsworth
     The eyes, nose, and lips are very prominent and well carved. The presence of Indian feathers and braid detracts in my opinion. The eyebrows are well formed.
