Found this in a Heritage auction. Have since had the "Hand Engraved Initials" attribution added:

That Civil war token has the initial H above the date, for the engraver Horter. It's known as Fuld 93/362a.

Since I opened my mouth, I might as well show a couple of my own....

Legend has it that the crescent mark at the top of the reverse was caused when the Princess was presented with the wax models for inspection, and she touched it with her fingernail.

I was at a coin show, in Columbus, Ohio, a long time ago and
saw Larry Briggs, at a table and bought this beautifully toned
and very lustrous 1915 S SEGSMS65 buffalo nickel, from him.
On all of my other buffalo nickels, I had copied and saved the
seller's professional photos, but on this 1915 S, I used my hand
helded digital camera, to try and capture the luster and gold toning.

Might need help figuring out how to post pictures from an iphone. Format does not look similar to what shows up in my laptop.
