I have seen his Mark in combination with other makers, the latest incarnation I found I cannot place. Simple coin 1830-1840s fiddle with shoulder, but the mark is Serrated Cartouch, with "P.V.S. VOORHIS" followed by the ever present (Albany) "NY" Eagle...

There is a P V S Voorhis in the 1830 U S Federal census in Lancaster, PA that was born in the 1790's.
