Notes

This Wisconsin Wing bannertone is carefully carved out of porphyry granite, a stone commonly chosen for this shape. A cast A26977-1 is also in the NMNH collection, evidence of the fine 19th century plaster cast work and painting done to represent the original stone. Included in Knoblock PL. 204/7. Iowa is written on the square surface of the perforation.

Date
