BYRON REED PEDIGREE INFORMATION SOUGHT  

   Lawrence J. Lee of the Durham Western Heritage Museum 
   in Omaha, NE, home of the Byron Reed collection, writes: 
   "HELP WANTED:   I am looking for help in determining 
   exactly what coins Omaha collector Byron Reed may have 
   purchased at various auctions he attended in the 1880s and 
   1890s.  It is well known Mr. Reed purchased the Parmelee 
   specimen of the 1804 dollar at the Parmelee sale in 1890; it 
   is also believed he purchased at least 25 other coins at this 
   same auction, but a complete list for the Parmelee sale is still 
   needed.  

   It is also thought Reed attended other several major sales, 
   possibly including Newlin ('83), Levick ('84), Thian ('85), 
   Randall ('85), Athole ('85), Maris ('86), Haines ('86), Tilton 
   ('86), Davis ('90) and Doughty ('90).  Any person with auction 
   catalogs from these sales would be doing a great service if they 
   could check for Byron Reed's name in those catalogs with the 
   buyer's names listed.  

   If you have any information, please contact:  Larry Lee, Curator, 
   Byron Reed Collection, Durham Western Heritage Museum, 
   801 S. 10th Street, Omaha, NE 68108 or call 402-444-5071. 
   Your help will be much appreciated and will be acknowledged 
    in a future article about the Reed library. "
