PERKINS IMAGES AVAILABLE AT ANA WEBSITE 

   ANA Museum Curator Robert Hoge writes: "Some of your 
   readers may be interested to know that there is an example 
   of the Perkins Bank Bill Test in the collection of the Museum 
   of the American Numismatic Association, in Colorado Springs. 
   In fact, it can be viewed, nearly in its entirety, on the ANA's 
   website if one goes to the ANA's  home page 
   (at www.money.org), then selects LIBRARY from the menu, 
   and then clicks on IMAGING PROJECT.  This beautifully 
   preserved rarity was donated to the ANA Money Museum by 
   our prominent and generous benefactor J. Roy Pennell, Jr. 
   It is now obviously the only example available on exhibit to 
   the public. 

   So many numismatists seem to take the ANA for granted.  It 
   exists solely for their benefit, yet a surprising number do not 
   really support it and many even seem to be essentially 
   unaware of its existence.  However, increasing numbers of 
   researchers do appear to be taking cognizance of the ANA's 
   resources, and it is hoped that the renovation plans presently 
   under way will enable larger numbers to take greater advantage 
   of the still little-known treasures here." 

   [Editor's note:  the ANA's Perkins images were a Featured
