Notes: "Herbert Simpson's mounted archer pressmark stems from 2 earlier marks or signets. When that gentleman came upon a Cyrenaican coin that pictured a horse, and another of the same country showing an archer, he mounted the archer, and an original device came into being. This is a minor variation on Arthur DuVall's original design of the device." © James Lamar Weygand
