This isn't exactly a numis-mystery, but while looking things up in Dave Bowers' American Numismatic Association Centennial History, I came across this reference to another coin and medal artist I hadn't heard of:
... an autographed letter by James Ross Snowden, Director of the Philadelphia Mint, which discussed a pattern double eagle design by I. Goldsborough Bruff, of Washington, D.C.
An quick Internet search lead me to believe the "I" should be a "J" (for Joseph).
So - can anyone tell us more about J. Goldsborough Bruff's numismatic work?
