George H. Lovett’s bust of George Washington First in War SH-76 is paired with Lovett’s Grand Entrance die SH 2-44. All three medals were marketed by USMC, who had contracts with Lovett and Key to produce dies on their behalf. The medal pictured has J.R. RIDDLE ESBRAGER counterpunched on the obverse at the bottom; it is not part of the die design.
