MORE ON PATTERNS 

   Charlie Horning writes: "In reply to Tom DeLorey's inquiry on 
   the earliest known sale of "identified" patterns,  I have a bit of 
   information that may be helpful to him. I am a collector of Bangs 
   auction literature ... on a quick perusal of my collection, I was 
   able to identify an earlier catalogue containing patterns: 
   Bangs, Merwin & Co. sale of June 21st, 22nd and 23rd, 1859 
   The term "proof patterns" is even listed on  the cover's 
   description of the sale. 

   There are several lots of patterns:  i.e. lot 293 -- Copper Pattern 
   of 1/4 eagle 1803  sold to a Mr. Moses for $.10 (ten cents).  In 
   the addenda, several patterns appear:  Lots 127-130 Pattern 
   cents from 1858  -- all proofs.  Lot 131 a "Nickle Flying Eagle 
   Cent, very Rare in that  metal --1855". 

   My catalogue is priced and named in pencil for all the U.S. coins 
   Attenelli attributes the collection to John K. Curtis and E.M.Camp. 
   Hope this is of some value."
