Find a Scrimshaw Artist Signature or Mark

I have been collecting scrimshaw artist marks and signatures over the years as a way to help collectors
asking me who may have done the work on their piece of art. I have decided to share what I have compiled.
This is by no means a complete list but will continue to grow over time.
Hope it helps and if you find it helpful, please leave me a comment here:
