Second Reverse - Our Next President

DeWitt AL 1860-35, white metal, 31mm

(on line image)

     This reverse is found on a Martin Van Buren piece from 1836 and a Winfield Scott campaign medalet of 1852. The entry in Sullivan for the Van Buren piece says "The reverse was muled with several other obverses at later dates". The Scott piece is found with several other reverses by George H. and this does not seem to be the original reverse for that medalet.  And Sullivan calls the fourth reverse the original for this one.

     So is this the original reverse for the 1836 Van Buren piece? If so then it is likely the work of Robert Lovett Sr. and later used by his sons.  This reverse die has also been muled with several other dies.

 

Our Next President / Boy and Dog mule

      Here the 'Our Next President' die is muled with W.H. Bridgens 'Boy and Dog' die, probably at the hands of George H..

DeWitt AL 1860-36, white metal, 31mm

NY 495F, copper, 31mm

    Sullivan mentions the white metal version of this mule under his listings for the 1861 Anti-Confederate medalets but does not list one in copper.  Rulau list this copper version under the merchant tokens of George H. but does not list the white metal. And it may be that neither die was his work! The boy and dog die was obviously the work of W.H. Bridgens and the reverse die could be the work of his brother John Doubleday.
