Wow, this is a really great Gnome by Tom Clark. It was my great grandfather's - his name was Oakie. I guess that is why someone gave it to him. This gnome is signed by Clark ( in cursive writing) on a leaf in the front. It is also stamped (impressed) on the right side just behind the coin. The impression on the right side says Thomas Clark 1982, however I have found another date on it just behind the number 40 and I believe it says 1983. I don't really understand the different dates and i personally have never seen one with different dates on it. The coin is an Argentina coin. Other than being dusty it is in mint condition.
