BYRON REED RESEARCH HELP WANTED 

   New subscriber Lawrence J. Lee, Curator, Byron Reed 
   Collection, writes: "Fellow inmates of the E-sylum: another 
   technopeasant now joins your ranks.   The only thing better 
   than the Asylum is E-Sylum! 

   I had contacted Wayne several months ago about getting help 
   finding catalogs with early collector Bryon Reed's name in them so 
   that I can determine the pedigree of Reed's coins. Karl Moulton was 
   kind enough to supply me the Reed data from his named Parmelee 
   catalog, so I was able to determine which lots and coins (105 
   total!) Reed purchased at the pivotal sale. 

   I now can refine my request even further. We know Reed traveled 
   yearly back to New York to visit relatives, and he often would 
   attended major sales in person. On the other hand, it is also 
   known he purchased coins through agents, including Ed Frossard, 
   John Haseltine, Lyman Low and Ed and George Cogan.  So I am 
   looking for any pre-1890 named catalog that mentions Mr. Reed. 
   In particular, I am now interested in finding named catalogs for the 
   following sales: 

   Haines 1881, Marvin 1881, Bushnell 1882, Riddle 1882, Newlin 
   1883, Bushnell 1884, Levick 1884, Randall 1885, Tilton 1886, 
   Snow 1888, Davis 1890, Doughty 1891, Ely (uncertain which 
   ones) Jenks (uncertain which one(s), but for sure Haseltine #69) 

   Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thank you."
