The photo Jim Neiswinter forwarded of Joseph N. T. Levick was certainly interesting, and has a lot of us perplexed.

Okay, I'll bite since no one else did. What's with the head cover and big grin in the picture of Levick? My guess is he is playing the wolf pretending to be grandmother in an off-the-charts version of Little Red Riding Hood. Am I close? Or do you really have to be numismatic bibliomaniac to figure it out?
I'm not sure what to make of it, either. Has anyone seen a photo like it? What could be going on here?
Jim's the creator of the new Neiswinter plate of 1793 large cents. He's learned a lot about Levick in his research, and not everything has been published yet. He sent the following image which he had obtained earlier from Joe Ciccone, archivist of the American Numismatic Society. It's the December 14, 1865 membership certificate for J.N.T. Levick. At that time the organization was the American Numismatic and Archaeological Society (A.N.A.S). -Editor
