There Are Dogs LOT 38 There Are Dogs
Bearded Hatless Man
Probable “Bo” Classic: AboveAve/Ave(H) 1914-P G


Final Price: ___$467.50___ ...Hammer Price plus 10% Buyer's Fee.

      DelFavero/Fivaz: A very nice post injury carving by Bo (DelFavero). Nice work in the field, lines to create hair and knurled graver lines to form collar and ear. A carving with much charm and lightly toned. While the nose is typical Bo style, because of the different hair, the 2nd examiner (Fivaz) cannot say with certainty that this carving was done by Bo. However, the consignor purchased this nickel indirectly from Del Romines who told the previous owner the carving was by George Washington “Bo” Hughes.
