W.E. DU BOIS HANDWRITING CONFIRMED  

   In a previous E-Sylum, David Cassel asked for help 
   confirming a handwriting sample attributed to early U.S. 
   Mint office William Du Bois.  In a letter to NBS Board 
   member Joel Orosz (and copied to The E-Sylum), David writes:  

   "You are a great detective to notice so many matches of 
   handwriting samples.  ... If this isn’t a case of the 
   old adage, “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours,” 
   then I don't know what is. We both proved each other’s query.  

   I am not sure how valuable the proof of your documents is to 
   you, but the proof of my documents used in the writing of my 
   yet to be released book, United States Pattern Postage 
   Currency Coins, validates much of my research, study, and  
   theories, and disproves some of what was offered by the  
   “experts” before me.  I am grateful that you responded to my 
   query for samples of the handwriting of William E. Du Bois."
