From the Author's Collection
Saturday, March 8, 2014
This superb and artistically rendered portrait of Abraham Lincoln
was recently completed by Jesse. It is mounted on solid Cherry and joins a companion portrait of George Washington in the collection of the author's wife Barbara.
This plaque is hand beaten out of 16 gauge copper sheeting by Jesse. It was made for a private collector with strong ties to El Pueblo Viejo who owns an extensive collection of firearms
with documented ties to the Eagle and the Snake.

A "High Wire Act"
This is the part of creating the Rifle for which Jud is justly famous. But, there is great risk. One mistake at this point and six years of exacting and painstaking work are wasted!
