Donald G. Tritt submitted this question about two enigmatic engraver signatures on wooden medals.
Can anyone help?
I thank you for your past help and kind offer to post my inquiry in The E-Sylum regarding the identity of the engraver/die sinker for two signatures.
Past contact with Hank Spangenberger & Dick Johnson has turned up no identification. More recent contact with David Alexander, Joe Levine, Ron Abler and Dave Bowers turned up no hunches, either.
I realize a general appeal is perhaps a long-shot but an attempt via your large email network is worthwhile.
On the attachments are pictures of the last two unidentified signatures/initials in my 30+ years of research on "Die Pressed Wooden Exonumia." Might anyone on your vast list have any hunch about the identity of either of these signatures?
Signature "A" appears on the 1876 Liberty Bell wooden plaquette.
Signature "B" appears on the 1883 Brooklyn Bridge wooden plaquette. (This signature is either a J superimposed on an H - or the other way around).
