POSTAGE CURRENCY PATTERN RESEARCH  

   An article in the June 14th, 1999 issue of Coin World described 
   David Cassel's research into U.S. Postage Currency patterns. 
   He sought the owner of the piece listed in the Judd pattern 
   book as J-325a.  I wrote to Dave offering to publicize his 
   quest in The E-Sylum, and inviting him to subscribe.  He 
   responded:  

   "The owner of the J-325a contacted me through the Coin 
   World article just as you did.  

   As happy as I am to have found this unique coin, I am equally 
   happy to have found you and your organization.  I am grateful 
   for your offer of assistance.  

   Maybe you would care to ask your members to advise me of 
   their holdings of  Postage Currency coins of 1863 and the 
   related dated coins of 1868 and 1869.  There are still other 
   coins that have been catalogued that may have been incorrectly 
   attributed.  Also, I am trying to provenance as many as I can.  

   ...  there is a period of time from the [B. Max Mehl] Olsen sale 
   through 1970 that I may be lacking in auction material of the 
   series.  (J-325 to J-331 and  J-640 to J-646 and J-714 to 
   J-717). "  

   If you have nice runs of 20th century catalogs and are willing 
   to help David out, contact him for a fax list of the catalogs 
   he's already used; you may have some of the ones he's 
   missing.  His email address is  DavCassel@aol.com.
