OLDEST COIN COLLECTION? 

   Regarding the "Oldest Coin Collection Recorded in the 
   U. S.?",  George Kolbe writes: "I call your attention to 
   page 75 of Attinelli." 

   [Page 75 is the beginning of Attinelli "Part II. Catalogues 
   and Price-Lists".  The first entry refers to a mention in the 
   catalogue of the Library Company of Philadelphia, dated 
   1764, to "The Valuable Collection of Ancient MEDALS, 
   in the Library".   This reference predates the 1795 
   collection by 31 years.   The oft-cited 1828 date in 
   Attinelli refers only to auctions.  Parts II and III of 
   Attinelli are often overlooked by readers - my favorite 
   part is Part III, beginning on p102:  "Publications Issued 
   in the United States" - Editor]
