Bearded Man Wearing Derby
Artist: Unknown
Coin: ND (F)

First Examiner: Fivaz
     The subject is wearing a high-crowned derby with a hint of a hatband. The profile was slightly altered. The ear was nicely formed. This carving appears to have had a lot of chisel work done. The subject has curly hair, beard, and moustache. The work on the coat, collar, and neck suggest that it may be a recent carving (raw metal), but the vertigris in the recessed area of the hatband counters this.
Second Examiner: Alpert
     The subject is wearing a large hemispherical hat with a narrow wrap-around brim and band. He also has a small detailed ear. The hair, beard, and moustache were carved. There is a minor notch at the top of the nose, otherwise the profile was unaltered. A double collar was carved and the field was chisel-dressed.
