Additional Details

This appears to be a later impression of a circa 1805 print. Lady Liberty stands guard over the tomb of Hamilton while commerce proceeds in the background. None of any printing in OCLC, though examples are traced at the Library of Congress, Museum of the City of New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts--Houston. None others traced at auction since 1939.
