ANOTHER MISSING MONTICELLO NUMISMATIC ITEM 

   John W. Adams writes: "While on the subject of missing 
   Jeffersonia,  add a set of Comitia Americana medals in white 
   metal.  This was brought across the Atlantic by TJ in 1789, 
   along with the silver set to be presented to George Washington. 
   (This treasure now resides in the cabinet of the Massachusetts 
   Historical Society). A couple of years ago,  I asked Monticello 
   about the white metal set and the curator recalls having it but 
   confessed sadly that it had disappeared."
