An exceptionally deep
carving depicting Dr. Frankenstein's helper Igor, piercing eyes, shaggy
beard and an inlayed 24kt gold tooth. In the background on either side of
the figure is an engraved and inlayed 'Tesla coil' with 24kt gold balls
shooting electric waves at each other, what every monster lab had to have.
A deep relief
carving with engraving, inlaying and stone setting thrown in to create an
elaborately beautiful young woman resplendent in her engraved and inlayed
24kt gold necklace with a faceted diamond set in front of her elaborate
headwear. The host coin for this carving is a wonderful 1913 type 2 full
horn buffalo .

A comical use of part of the original design depicting a buffalo hunter packing out a trophy full horn buffalo head for mounting back home.

A peaceful traditional gray alien head with two shooting stars falling to earth and a flying saucer taking off in the background, the date 1928 is also on the side of another detailed spacecraft.
