Sullivan does not list the above pieces as the work of George H. but
the obverse of USG 1868-8 is a reduction of this obverse, with
the wreath removed, and this obverse if found with a reverse
associated with other works of George H. plus other details
that indicate this is his work.

     Are these the work of George H. or his brother Robert Jr? In a footnote to this listing in "American Political Badges and Medalets" it states the obverse is found muled with two other dies - the Dickeson's Coin & Medal Safe die and the Pro Patria die; both of these by Robert Jr.

Sullivan does not attribute these to George H. but I think the muling below, and its association with other works of his, indicate it was his product.

The two medals above are unlisted in Sullivan but I have given them the designations 1868-22 (b) and (c.). The latter muling is also found in copper. 

DeWitt USG 1868-24, copper, 28mm
     This piece is not attributed to George H. but the obverse is found with the obverse of the Grant Memorial medal above, a possible George H. Lovett work.

This medalet is not listed by Sullivan as the work of George H. but the obverse
was used on an 1868 piece which is found with several reverses attributed
to him. Also, USG 1872-3(A) consist of this obverse muled with a
reverse attributed to his brother Robert Jr.
