JEFFERSON PORTRAIT: BY SMILLIE OR BURT?

Bob Neale writes: "Was the engraver of Jefferson's portrait for
stamps and currency (as per the painting by Gilbert Stuart selected
as the official rendition in 1867): James Smillie, or Charles Burt?
Both have been credited, and both repeatedly. I have not yet found
a definitive source. I wonder whether Burt worked for Smillie? I
would appreciate reference to such a definitive source
(robtneale@aol.com) should a reader have it handy."
