The bust is incised on the back of the base: Copyright 1909 / Boston Sculpture Co. / Melrose-Mass. / 8090A R Gironi. A maker's plate is set in the underside of the base. Boston Sculpture Company's 1914 catalog describes this as the best likeness of Lincoln available: All the others are poor imitations of ours, and the only reason for its being on the market is that it is offered at a lower price.
