Can anyone please help identify artist?

I found this charcoal drawing in the back of a framed map this morning at a swapmeet. It looks fairly old and great quality. Any help identifying would be appreciated.

The artist is Hans Holbein the Younger (1498 to 1543)

wow, that was fast! Thanks! I obviously must have a reproduction of somekind. The odd thing is it's an original drawing of some sort. It's very thin and delicate and done in orange chalk. Any ideas?

It also has a very tiny penciled "65" on the back

Sounds like a Conte crayon drawing.
I would inquire here:
