The John D Lovett Gallery

 

If you are looking to complete a set of medals/tokens struck by one of the Lovetts this is where to start! He was also apprenticed to his father in 1835 and appears to have worked out of his shop with his brother George. Later he is listed on his own at No 1 Courtland Street as indicated by his storecards. The work that is definitely attributed to him include his storecards, a series of campaign medalets for Lincoln's 1860 campaign, and the anti-confederate piece that is well-known to collectors of Civil War tokens. The Eleanor Rugg Byrne tokens, NY 141 – 143A, have sometimes been attributed to John D. also.
