THIS AMAZINGQUARTER PLATE SHOWS A MAN WHO WAS BORNLONGBEFORE THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.It was created by celebratedthe partnership of Albert S. Southworth and Josiah J. Hawesof Boston. Judging from the chiseled features and wrinkled skin, the man could been ninety or one hundred years old when he sat for this portrait.
