George H. Lovett produced a series of merchant tokens for John K. Curtis utilizing 3 different dies describing his business combined with The Antiquary die, Johannes Allan die, and the Cincinnatus of America die. Several mules of these and other dies of George H. are also known.

The perfect example of George H's proclivity to put any two dies
together if he thought collectors would find them desirable. These
two dies have nothing to do with each other but I imagine the
Antiquary dies was popular with collectors as it showed a scholar
examining a coin or medal.
