QUERY: SALATHIEL ELLIS PORTRAITS, CAMEOS SOUGHT

Dick Johnson writes:
I just finished an article on Salathiel Ellis, the cameo engraver who modeled four presidents (Fillmore, Pierce, Buchannan and Lincoln) for the Indian Peace Medal Series and two medals for the Military Series (Scott and Taylor) among others. These were all struck at the Philadelphia Mint.

Does anyone have an illustration -- or the actual item -- of any cameo portraits he prepared over his career in the 1840s to 1860s? Georgia Chamberlain illustrated two of these in plaster and a separate illustration of Gilbert Stuart in her book, American Medals and Medallists. Are there any others?
