Memorial Cabinet Cards

One of the things I like to collect is memorial cabinet cards.  Below are two cards for Charles W. Verder:


Having two different cards for the same person is something which I believe is very unusual. The one on the left is much more ornate and contains the full name, while the one on the right is more plain and uses only the first initial.  If anyone else has ever seen an instance of different styles of card being produced for the same person, I would love to hear about it!  Maybe it is not as unusual as I think it is.
