PERKINS BANK BILL TEST 

   Eric P. Newman  writes: "You asked in your Nov.26, 2000 
   Bulletin about the present location of the  JACOB PERKINS 
   BANK BILL TEST from the Streeter sale in l966-70.  It is in 
   its original marbled paper thin boards and is in choice condition. 
   It has been in my library (actually in my bank safe deposit box) 
   since shortly after the sale. If my recollection is correct I was 
   unsuccessful in my bid for it because one of the institutions 
   outbid the limit my agent had from me. 

   Then the institution decided that they really didn't want it and 
   asked my agent to try to sell it to the underbidder for what I 
   had bid. I was just lucky to back into it that way.  The only 
  other one I have ever heard of was the Fuld - Bass copy which 
   was completely rebound and which I think Kolbe sold rather 
   recently.  Does anyone know of any other originals, as I have 
   not checked carefully?  Fuld made reproductions of his piece 
   long ago. As soon as others furnish you with information as to 
   what other numismatic books were in the Streeter Sale I believe 
   I can comment further."
