Ding ding ding!
Robert Scot indeed, and he was indeed a jerk. Personally, I think he wasn't so jealous of Reich's talent, as jealously guarding his own job as Chief Engraver, which he kept until the day he died, by sabotaging anyone who came along who had talent and promise. Still, the first dies for the Flowing Hair and Draped Bust coins and the early Capped Bust gold coinage, were probably made right here at his workshop at Front and Vine. Makes me wonder how such beautiful designs could have been executed by someone so petty and mean, by all accounts. Maybe it's the artistic temperament; great works don't always come from the nicest people. The other possibility is that he was taking credit for others creativity.
