NBS AMERICAN NUMISMATIC BIBLIOGRAPHY? 

   Dave Bowers writes: "The interest in the 1850 Eckfeldt-Dubois 
   work prompts me to suggest a "forum" for the NBS: 

   How about compiling an American Numismatic Bibliography 
   for the pre-Civil War (or even pre-1876 centennial)? The 
   listing could include extensive articles in periodicals (e.g., the 
   still-not-seen-by-me Jeremiah Colburn series in the Boston 
   Evening Transcript in the late 1857s, the numerous entries in 
   Historical Magazine, the several detailed articles in Harper's 
   Monthly Magazine, the handful of books published, etc.  All 
   of this could be accompanied by comments from NBS members 
   about their experiences in getting copies (ala the Newman 
   situation with the Streeter sale), modern editorial opinions and 
   reviews, etc." 

   [This would certainly be a worthwhile project for the NBS 
    membership.  Attinelli, Part III and The Historical Magazine 
    are good starting points, and since I have a run of the early 
    volumes, I could contribute if others are willing to help. -Editor]
