Engraved signatures of Lyons (Register of the Treasury) and Roberts, (Treasurer of the United States). Running Antelope was a Chief of the Hunkpapa, part of the Lakota Sioux. George F.C. Smillie’s engraved rendering (based on this photograph) caused significant controversy as Running Antelope, a Sioux, was depicted wearing Pawnee headdress.
