ROBERT LOVETT GRAVESTONE PLAQUE DEDICATION REPORT

Last week we excerpted a report from the Zanesville Times Recorder
about the recent dedication of an American Numismatic Association
Hall of Fame plaque for Robert Lovett, Jr.  Harold Levi was there
for the ceremony and sends us this report.  He writes:

"A bronze plaque was made to commemorate Robert Lovett, Jr.ís
induction into the Hall of Fame, which was mounted forward of the
headstone between the two halves of the Confederate cent. The July
14, 2007 dedication ceremony was attended by the President of the
Ohio Department of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, members
of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, Civil War reenactors, and
several others.

"At the dedication, George Corell gave a short history of our work.
I explained that RL was inducted into the Hall of Fame for the depth
and breadth of his artistic talent and the body of his work, not
just for creating the Confederate cent. The ANA award was displayed
during the ceremony, thanks to Katie Jaeger. I wore my Confederate
uniform with red sash and sabre. At the end of the ceremony, I
performed a sabre salute with the coordinated firing of a musket
salute by Confederate reenactors. A cannon salute had been planned
but we were unable to get it organized.

"For those who may have seen the newspaper report, let me assure
you that George Corell and I were not inducted into the ANA Hall
of Fame, infamy maybe. The Zanesville and Morgan County (Ohio)
newspapers reported that George and I had been inducted into the
Hall of Fame not Lovett. While in McConnelsville, I discovered the
source of the reporting error. It was a misunderstanding by someone
that was about three tiers out from the source. It was a bit like
a rumor, the farther from the source the more it distorts."
