FEATURED WEB SITE: LOVETT TOKENS AND MEDALS

This week's Featured Web Site is a new work in progress by Dave Baldwin suggested by John Sallay, who writes:

Great start! The photography is really nice and this web site will be a terrific place for anyone interested in any of the tokens and medals produced by the Lovetts.

Welcome to Lovett Tokens and Medals.com, a website devoted to the works of Robert Lovett Sr. and his sons Robert Jr., George H., and John D.. The purpose of this website is threefold to share information on the numismatic works of this family, to provide a forum for others to do the same, and hopefully lead to the publication of a book/catalog on their works.

The Lovett's works span most of the 19th Century; from Robert Sr's early career in New York City with well-known engraver Thomas Brown to the last year of George H's life in 1894. A collection of their works will include medals and tokens in nearly every category of Exonumia with examples being very commonplace to extremely rare or unique. The craftsmanship ranges from the highest quality to what appear to be very hastily engraved and struck pieces. George H. was especially prolific and produced many pieces simply for sale to the public rather than on the orders of an institution or individual. And of course Robert Jr's Confederate Cent is one of their most famous, and controversial, works.

Many pages have yet to be fleshed out, but there is some good information here, as well as some nice images. -Editor
