Five men's heads demonstrate varied interests in antique objects: toothless old man studies a circular disk through a magnifying glass; man next to him does the same with a gold ring; at the back a dealer studies a coin while an anxious old man studies him; and in the middle is a man with a hard look, as though wanting everything. In front is a box with an assortment of pieces. (Virginia K. Anderson 12/17/93)
