A final thought about George Washington facing left or right (see VexTab #48 & VexTab #51): Chris Bedwell sent me images of a home-made Washington State flag with George facing both ways. (Thanks, Chris.)
The images had me look at the money in my wallet. A quiz for readers: Without looking at your money…
1) Which way is George facing on the U.S. one-dollar bill?
2) Gilbert Stuart’s unfinished 1796 painting of George Washington is currently portrayed on the one-dollar bill. Which way is George facing in the painting?
3) Which way is George facing on the U.S. quarter (25-cent piece)?
