Indian Squaw
Artist: Jerry Pardubicky
Coin: ND-D (G)

Donation to OHNS

First Examiner: Alpert
     This is a nice cameo (with LIBERTY left on) of a woman or Indian squaw. The profile was strongly altered, with rounded chin. The subject has nicely carved hair and braid, no ear, and an added eyebrow. It was signed with a horned-circle signature on the bison.
Second Examiner: Fivaz
     This is a well done modern carving of an Indian squaw with long hair and pigtail. The profile and mouth were altered. The field was smoothly dressed (LIBERTY remaining) and the coin was lightly buffed after the work was done. It was 搒igned on the bison抯 body on the reverse.

Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: 1913-P T-2 (XF)

First Examiner: Alpert
     This nice hobo nickel was created by a talented maker. I know of several other specimens of his work. The distinctive hat has a wide, curved, crescent-shaped brim, a shaded band with a bow at the back, and a flattish top. The hair-beard-moustache were chiseled or punched with a textured tool. The flat nose has a big nostril. The subject is wearing a shaded lower collar. The field was dressed with a dimpled texture from pounding or hammering. The weakest feature is the indistinct tiny ear.
Second Examiner: Wilson
     This very attractive work was engraved with jeweler抯 tools: a liner graver was used to create the collar and hatband. The field was delicately preened. The nose is comical and cartoon-like. The nostril was punched and the beard created by a florentining tool.
