EARLY  ASSAYERS' WRITING SAMPLES  

   David Cassel's request for writing samples of early mint assayers 
   Eckfelt and DuBois turned up assistance from Pete Smith and 
   Joel Orosz.   Pete wrote that "Craig Whitford sold a handwritten 
   document from Jacob Eckfeldt in his sale of October 6, 1995, 
   lot 264.  The document is illustrated in the catalog."  

   Joel wrote: "I have two samples that are supposedly pertinent. 
   One is a purported inscription on the Mint Manual from Jacob 
   Eckfeldt, the authorship of which I doubt, and the other is an 
   inscription on Pledges of History which may have been penned 
   by DuBois.  I will send photocopies to Mr. Cassel this 
   weekend."  

   To his note Joel added: "Keep the E-Sylum coming - as we 
   say in Battle Creek, it's Grrreat!"
