Fine Joel E. Whitney CDV of Po-go-nay-ke-shick (Hole in the Day), Chippewa,

cancelled 2-cent Federal revenue stamp, verso. Hole in the Day has allowed his typical otter fur turban to slip down around his neck. A small roach headdress of dyed white-tailed deer hair, almost certainly red, is affixed to his scalp lock, with seven golden eagle tail feathers representing battle coups. A twisted strip of skunk fur is wrapped around the right sleeve of his black wool coat. A red wool blanket is wrapped over the coat. His leggings are made of red wool. The deerskin moccasins, of typical Ojibwa pattern, have leather vamp inserts embroidered with dyed porcupine quillwork. In his right hand is grasped a carved, wooden "gunstock" war club with a wrist strap of twisted and fringed otter fur.
