RESEARCH REQUEST   

    NBS member W. David Perkins, an early silver dollar  
   (1794-1803) collector and researcher, requests assistance  
    from anyone who might know the answer to the following:   

    "According to a copy (with buyer's initials) of the Lester  
    Merkin September 18, 1968 Public Auction Sale, lot 272,  
    a 1799/8 B-1 silver dollar in About Uncirculated (lot is  
    plated in the sale catalog) was purchased by a collector or  
    dealer with the initials "J.O.K."  Does anyone know who the  
    initials J.O.K. stand for?   

    [This same specimen was later offered in the Bowers &  
    Merena Mann & Smedley sale, September 13, 1988:363  
    (lot is plated in this sale also).  It is unknown if more than one  
    person owned this silver dollar from 1968 to1998.]"
