And speaking of Eckfeldt, here's a new question from one of our subscribers who is a descendent of the famous Mint family. Can anyone help?
When I saw the article seeking identification of the nineteenth century portrait a couple weeks back, it sparked my interest because of a wax portrait I have that came down through the Eckfeldt family. Unfortunately its positive identification didn't come along with it, but I was told it might be of Adam Columbus Eckfeldt who was the brother of Jacob Reese Eckfeldt, the subject of the water color portrait in last week's E-Sylum.
And, incidentally, this wax portrait was restored by Donna Weaver, who has done engraving and designing for the U. S. Mint. I would be happy if anyone out there can positively identify this fine-looking gentleman!
